No Clue! - Nov. 5 -13 2011



From the Director's Chair - Roseann Whilshire

No Clue has been adapted for the stage from the film Clue. After studying the film and the screenplay, I recognized hints of Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians and realized that the writers of Clue based their story line on this original play. Later I saw the film Murder by Death and realized that Clue was also based on this film.   So, No Clue is now an adaptation of a screenplay, adapted from the board game and adapted from the classic film Murder by Death adapted from Ten Little Indians by Agatha Christie. Phew! After directing two serious Agatha Christie plays here at LLT I find it fitting that I get to make fun of myself and all murder mysteries with this hysterical send up.

Of course, I started with one of the most famous comedy writers of our time, Jonathan Lynn. His screenplay from the film has been fun to work with and his prolific career spans nearly four decades. He is most famous for the 1980's BBC phenomena YES, MINISTER and YES, PRIME MINISTER that initially propelled him to fame in his native Great Britain. He co-created and co-wrote all of the series' episodes, which lampooned his native country's political system.

The most exciting part of working on this play has been my wonderful cast and crew and collaboration with our fine screenplay adaptor Anne O’Neemus. We laughed so much rehearsing it and rewriting it for the stage that all I can hope is that you get at least as much out of watching it as we all did in creating it. Hats off to my wonderful cast and crew of No Clue.
