A Murder Is Announced

Darlington Civic Theatre

Tuesday 15 to Saturday 19 July

 The Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, brings super-sleuthing Miss Marple to the Civic  Theatre to solve the unusual mystery of a predicted death.

The ‘announcement’ is in the local paper, stating time and place of a murder in Miss Blacklock’s house. However the victim is not one of the several occupants, temporary and permanent, 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, with Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution - at some risk to herself - in a dramatic confrontation scene just before the final curtain.

Starring Louise Jameson (EastEnders, Dr Who, Tenko) as Miss Marple, and joined by Sophie Powles (Emmerdale) as Phillipa Haymes.
