The second edition of this unrehearsed murder mystery will play at the Park Theatre from the 9th February until the 12th March.

The Park Theatre has announced the full line up of guest performers who will take to the Park200 stage this February and March – completely unrehearsed – to play the Inspector in a farcical whodunnit.

Each performance will see  a different actor, presenter, musician or comedian having their lines fed to them via earpiece as they attempt to crack the case of a stolen diamond. But who is set to perform each night is a secret until the curtain goes up.

Every performance features the voices of Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson and Stephen Fry, and the confirmed in person guest performer rota is: Gillian Anderson, Clive Anderson, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Gyles Brandreth, Marcus Brigstocke, Simon Callow, Michelle Collins, Adrian Dunbar, Mark Gatiss, David Haig, Harry Hill, Adam Hills, Suranne Jones, Paterson Joseph, Ronan Keating, Ross Kemp, Maureen Lipman, Joanna Lumley, Lee Mack, Jason Manford, Stephen Mangan, Tim McInnerny, Ian McKellen, David Mitchell, Neil Morrissey, Tamzin Outhwaite, Sue Perkins, Clarke Peters, Tony Robinson, Hugo Speer, Meera Syal, Emma Thompson, Tim Vine, Johnny Vegas, and Bradley Walsh.

Meanwhile, the production’s core cast includes: Lewis Bruniges, Mark Cameron, Caroline Deverill, Candida Gubbins, Aisha Numah, Adam Samuel-Bal, Robert Blackwood, and Molly Barton.

A luxury cruise 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.

Talking about the news, Writer and Director Jez Bond said “Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] was such a success in 2019, we felt it was only right to bring back the concept; with an utterly new script. The support we have had from some of the very biggest names in film, TV, music and theatre has absolutely blown us away and we’re delighted and honoured to see a huge number of returning Inspectors as well as the terrific new ones who have come on board.”

Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] has been written by Jez Bond and Mark Cameron as well as set and costume design by Zahra Mansouri, sound design by Andre T, lighting design by Julian McCready and choreography and movement direction by Natasha Harrison.

Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] will play at the Park Theatre from the 9th February until the 12th March.
