A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED
“THERE WAS NO UNKINDNESS IN MISS MARPLE, SHE JUST DID NOT TRUST PEOPLE.”
— Christie on the beloved Miss Marple
AGATHA CHRISTIE’S WORLD FAMOUS MISS MARPLE STARS IN A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED.
Following the huge success of The Mousetrap, Agatha Christie’s A Murder Is Announced, was the first of Christie’s works featuring the sensibly-heeled sleuth, Miss Marple to be dramatised. As she works tirelessly to solve the crime, it’s a night at the theatre that will have you guessing till the end. In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense within a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner…
In an English village, you turn over a stone and have no idea what will crawl out. The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Miss Marple, are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday 13th October, at Little Paddocks at 6.30pm.’ A childish practical joke or a hoax?
Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks when, at the appointed time, the lights go out, a gun is fired and a body falls…
Can you guess whodunit?
