The Mystery of Edwin Drood
About The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Charles Dickens’ final novel was entitled "The Mystery of Edwin Drood." There was just one small problem with the murder mystery: the author died before it was completed! As a result, the reader never knew the true fate that Dickens had intended for his beloved title character…until now! Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical takes audience participation to new heights and solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. It is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives.
