It's late summer, 1954. Gasoline is $0.29 per gallon and the stop-motion Godzilla is terrorizing movie-goers as they have never been terrorized before. You can buy a brand new car for a mere $1500, Brown vs. the Board of Education has ruled segregation in schools unconstitutional, and 25-year-old Audrey Hepburn just took home the Best Actress Oscar for Roman Holiday. The most iconic photo of Marilyn Monroe in her white flying skirt is about to be taken.
The night is dark and stormy, and you've been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead. So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game, Clue is a madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.
