Agatha Christie’s A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED
A ‘Miss Marple’ Murder Mystery!
Agatha Christie’s “A Murder is Announced”
Adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon. In the fall of 1950, the residents of Miss Blacklock’s boarding house are surprised to read in the local newspaper that a murder will take place that evening, in their very home. Assumed to be a joke, a night of fun and games turns grisly when a murder does indeed take place, and the police begin their investigation. But it’s up to Christie’s busybody sleuth Miss Marple to play by her own rules to solve the whodunit. Secrets are discovered and greed runs rampant as the little old lady detective uses her cunning wile to dig deeper into the mystery. As the riddle gets closer to being solved, the murderer gets desperate and the survivors are in mortal danger. Funny and chilling, this classic Christie story proves to be one of the most exciting stage adaptations of Christie’s novels. “Had the first night audience on the edge of their seats.” – Evening Post. “Re-enter Agatha with another whodunit hit, another of her fiendishly ingenious murder mysteries.” – London Evening News.
