SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the Scotch Plains Fanwood Repertory Spring musical production opens on Friday, March 11.
Written by Rupert Holmes, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name. In a small town in England, Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom?
- His leering romantic rival, John Jasper?
- The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon?
- Someone else even more dastardly and villainous?
Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit, so the audience gets to finish the story Charles Dickens didn’t! It’s the only show in town that ends differently every night, depending on what the audience decides.
