COMEDY, chaos and TikTok could well have been the name of the game when Cluedo opened at Mayflower Theatre.

This hilarious and slapstick play is based on both the classic detective board game, Cluedo, which is probably the most famous whodunit - loved by amateur detectives for generations, and the hit 1980s’ Paramount film, Clue.

When Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Reverend Green, Mrs White and Colonel Mustard arrive at a country house one dark and stormy evening, they are surprised to find they have all received the same intriguing invitation from Lord Boddy.

It soon becomes clear that they all have something to hide as the mystery and hysteria grows, and the inhabitants and guests of Boddy Manor are killed off one by one with a variety of familiar weapons, leaving everyone to wonder, who will be next.

And wonder we did… even if some of the teen theatre-goers were slightly more excited by the presence of Southampton TikTokers matthewandryanuk - who have 5.7 million followers - in the audience.

The entire cast, including former Eastenders star, Michelle Collins as Miss Scarlett and Daniel Casey (Midsummer Murders) as Professor Plum, give the audience plenty of laughs as they fall over themselves trying to figure out who committed the crime, in what room and with what weapon.

Daily Echo:

The audience loved Jean-Luke Worrell, who was simply outstanding as Wadsworth as he captured the quirkiness of his character with perfect comedic timing and facial expressions that spoke without a word.

Special mention must also go to Tom Babbage as Reverend Green, who gave an almost heart-stopping performance (in more ways than one). Definitely one to watch in the future.

Directed by The Play That Goes Wrong’s Mark Bell, the cast are backed up by an impressive set, with doors and rooms that appear and open to reveal their secrets and help keep you guessing right to the end!

Cluedo runs until Saturday (May 21). Tickets from or 02380 711811.
