Whodunnit at the Coliseum

Oldham Coliseum Theatre and Front Room Productions present Whodunnit at the Coliseum? April 9–25.

It’s up to audiences at home to figure out whodunnit in a tongue-in-cheek digital murder mystery. Set at the Coliseum in 1954, on the opening night of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, house manager Mr Fitch is found dead moments before curtain-up.

Part theatre, part film and part video game, Whodunnit at the Coliseum? features '50s-inspired musical numbers and digital interactivity, to create a production the likes of which the Coliseum has never seen before.

Action takes place all around the building taking in familiar spaces including the bar and the foyer, plus rarely-seen backstage areas.

Online tickets are valid for two days' access meaning audiences can play as many times as they like.
