Monday 11th May– Sunday 22nd November 2015
Edwin Drood has disappeared, but is he dead or alive, and who is behind the crime?
This captivating exhibition explores the legacy of Dickens’s final and unfinished novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood. With its intriguing narrative cut short by the sudden death of the author in 1870, Dickens’s unsolved tale of mystery has captured the imagination of generations of literary enthusiasts.
Investigate the central crime scenes, search for murder clues hidden in Dickens’s former home and see the table on which the novel was penned along with clips from theatrical adaptations, and a wealth of theories on ‘whodunit’.
The opening of this exciting exhibition coincides with the conclusion of the Drood Inquiry, an interactive investigation into the mystery: www.droodinquiry.com
