A luxury crui​se far from civilisation, an impending storm and poison aplenty…

When a diamond is stolen and the bodies start to pile up, the clock starts ticking for our illustrious Inspector. Can they finally bring the elusive Crimson Hand to justice? With murder, blackmail and inflatable parrots, this murder mystery spoof has one hell of a twist. And no one’s called Oliver. 

Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] 2 not only features the voice of Ian McKellen & Emma Thompson, but also a different celebrity in each performance stepping in as the Inspector without any rehearsal and without ever having seen the script!

Gargantuan guests – including Gillian Anderson, Clive Anderson, Harry Hill, Adam Hills, Ronan Keating, Ross Kemp, Joanna Lumley, Lee Mack, Stephen Mangan, David Mitchell, Meera Syal, Emma Thompson and Johnny Vegas will have their lines fed to them live onstage via an earpiece as they attempt to crack the case, avoid the furniture and stagger their way to justice. We won’t be announcing which date each of our celebrity friends is playing the Inspector – the mystery is who will walk through the door at your performance!

After the show hear from our celebrity in a ‘behind the scenes’ conversation, when it’s your turn to do the interrogation.

Project History

Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] is an original concept by Jez Bond & Mark Cameron, first premiered at the Park Theatre in 2019 as a fundraising run for the theatre. The idea revolves around a different celebrity guest performing in a central role using only an earpiece inside a fully rehearsed murder mystery. The show was revived in 2022 to fundraise for the Park Theatre following the Covid-19 pandemic, where GDP came on board as an associate producer to support the smooth running of the performances.
