Story

What Is the Story of The Mystery of Edwin Drood?
Based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood tells the story of young Edwin Drood, an Englishman whose sudden disappearance throws the fictional townspeople of Cloisterham into a panic. Suspicions arise about who is responsible for Drood’s vanishing, with fingers pointing every which way, including the dashing but villainous John Jasper, Drood's fiancee Rosa Bud, opium den proprietor Princess Puffer and mysterious siblings Helena and Neville Landless. As the investigation pushes forward, everyone who came into contact with Drood joins the lineup of the suspects.

Critics' Reviews

"Anna Louizos's fantastically elaborate sets are perfect... and William Ivey Long's costumes are as luscious-looking as you could possibly desire."

Review by Terry Teachout from The Wall Street Journal

"...there's a charmingly meta quality to Holmes' approach to the material: He imagines the story as a performance of an old-fashioned English music-hall troupe, led by a spirited master of ceremonies played to spry perfection by Jim Norton."

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly
