Director's Note

"Living without laughing isn’t living. Be silly. Be honest. Be kind."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’ve loved working on this play so much because it involves two of my favorite things: mystery and silliness.

Who among us doesn’t love solving a mystery? Whether it’s Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, or even the modern-day Benoit Blanc of the Knives Out films, solving mysteries engages us on every level.

Which is why it’s no surprise that Clue is one of the most popular board games of all time. It involves secrets and solutions, murder, and mischief. We roll dice, ask questions, and, by process of elimination, race toward a final accusation: “Colonel Mustard, in the Study, with the Candlestick!”

Along with being one of the great board games, Clue also inspired a well-known film upon which this play is based. It is famously funny, fast, and, most of all, silly.

Silliness has gotten a bad reputation over the years. The modern-day usage describes someone silly as “stupid”, or “not serious.” In fact, the word “silly” is derived from the German word “selig” which means: to be blessed.

I love this because, personally, I feel blessed whenever I’m around someone silly.

And I hope today, as you figure out whodunit, with what, and where, that we will also make you feel, well, silly.
