Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced, Adapted by Leslie Darbon – a Miss Marple Mystery

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.

The show will run from Friday, October 12, 2018 – Sunday, October 21, 2018. A Friday, Saturday, Sunday plus second week Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday run. ***Please make sure you are available for all dates.*** Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances are at 7:30pm. Sunday performances are at 2pm.
