The Mystery of Edwin Drood

November 4, 2015

The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Suggested by the unfinished novel by Charles Dickens
A musical - book, music & lyrics by Rupert Holmes

Directed by Alan Burrows

Season 4 2015: 
4 November to 21 November 

By special arrangement with Origin Theatrical Pty Ltd.  

This hilarious musical whodunit was a smash hit on Broadway. Loosely based on Charles Dickens' famous unfinished novel, it uses the world of music hall and pantomime as a backdrop, following the exploits of a troupe of "hammy" Victorian actors (members of the Theatre Royale Music Hall Company) as they attempt to complete the unfinished story. Everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood - and it's up to you to choose the killer! Each performance ends differently, depending on what the audience decides!
