'Move over Poirot and step aside Nancy Drew, there's a new detective in town. Esther is the super sleuth determined to crack the mystery of the Cluedo Club killings. By daringly investigating each clue and interrogating every possible suspect, she gets herself in too deep - could she be the serial killers next victim?
The cast hit all of their cues brilliantly, which means when the 'Dun dun DUN' sound effects play, the company's over the top, and over expressed head turns towards the audiences are timed perfectly. Their over-exaggerated delivery style is nothing short of fantastic, and the production is packed full of this kind of physical comedy.
This seems to suit the style of Nat Kennedy, whose direction draws out the best performances from all. Leaving nothing to chance, her choices are incredibly slick and each bit of movement has been selected with a clear evocation in mind. Her production will leave you on the edge of your seats, both in suspense and shear hilarity.
Back in the day the Arcola Queer Collective's shows used to transfer to the main space, and it'd be great to see The Cluedo Club Killings follow that trend - it most definitely deserves a longer run. Who dunnit? Well, you're going to have to head to Dalston to find out. ' - Broadway World
