Cluedo! The Interactive Game
Cluedo! The Interactive Game brings an evening of music, mayhem, mystery and murder to one of Brisbane's most stunning heritage-listed buildings, on Thursday nights from May 2nd.*
Queensland’s biggest ever immersive theatre season promises more melodrama, more laughter, and more suspense as the popular murder-mystery game leaps off the board and into the splendid old-world surrounds of Baedeker Wine Bar.
Audience members are called upon to play the part of guests and amateur sleuths at a doomed 1930s cocktail party and must collect clues throughout the evening to solve the bloody crime. Was it Professor Plum, in the Conservatory with the candlestick, or Miss Scarlett, in the Drawing Room with the dagger?
Brisbane Immersive Ensemble director Ben Lynskey said audiences can influence the outcome of Queensland’s largest immersive theatre experience just as much as the actors.
“Cluedo! The Interactive Game is like if Agatha Christie and Jay Gatsby threw the vintage party of the decade,” Mr Lynskey said. “There are frights and fights, sexual tension mingling with nail-biting suspense and lavish costumes, combining with a cast of experienced actors, to provide an unforgettable night out.”
Two new cast members have joined the immersive production in 2019: UK-based stage and screen actor Tristan Teller as Reverend Green and Matilda Award-winning Colin Smith as Doctor Black, the evening’s host and eventual murder victim.
Brisbane Immersive artistic director Xanthe Jones said Cluedo! The Interactive Game was more than just a theatrical re-imagining of the classic board game. “We want guests to feel like they are a VIP member of 1930s high society, so we have made sure every element works together to create an immersive world,” Ms Jones said.
“From the moment they enter the incredible venue, guests are greeted by the party’s host, Doctor Black and integrated into the swirl of rumours and crime within the glamorous world of the socialites that make up our Cluedo characters.
“Guests are encouraged to dress the part so when they step through the doors of Baedeker and start exploring its secret passageways and grand ballrooms, they truly feel as though they are stepping back in time.”
