Gillian Anderson, Stephen Mangan and David Mitchell among celebrity guests in Park Theatre’s Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] 2


Almost 40 celebrities will take to the Park200 stage completely unrehearsed to play the Inspector in a brand new farcical whodunnit as part of a vital fundraiser for Park Theatre in February and March 2022. The actors, presenters and comedians will have their lines fed to them via earpiece as they attempt to crack the case of a stolen diamond, avoid the furniture and stagger their way to justice.

The first Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] in 2019 saw incredible spontaneous moments from a moustachioed Gillian Anderson, to Ronan Keating breaking into song, to Gyles Brandreth ad-libbing in Hungarian. Celebrities will once again place themselves at the mercy of the earpiece – many returning, as well as some new faces – to support Park Theatre’s fundraiser following a difficult 18 months for theatre.

Confirmed names so far include Clive Anderson, Gillian Anderson, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Gyles Brandreth, Michelle Collins, Adam Hills, Harry Hill, Ross Kemp, Joanna Lumley, Lee Mack, Stephen Mangan, David Mitchell, Tanya Moodie, Clark Peters, Meera Syal and Johnny Vegas. Following the show, the audience will be given the chance to ask the celebrity questions about what they’ve just seen.

The cast also includes the voices of Ian McKellen & Emma Thompson.

Speaking about the show, Artistic Director Jez Bond said: “We had such a great response to Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] in 2019 that we have brought it back with a whole new murder mystery and another astonishing slate of guest performers. As a theatre venue that receives no regular public subsidy fundraisers like this are vital to our survival, and the number of high-profile people who have offered to give their time and put themselves in the nerve wracking position of acting a role they have never seen before is absolutely humbling. I honestly cannot wait."

Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] is at the Park Theatre from 9 February to 12 March
