'A Murder is Announced' by Agatha Christie

Tickets on sale Monday 5 June 2017

Rehearsals are now in full swing for ‘Murder’.

The play has been cast and our 12 characters – seven women and five men - are currently rehearsing away from the Playhouse Theatre while ‘Blithe Spirit’ enters its final rehearsal period before opening on 9 April.

‘A Murder is Announced’ is a classic Agatha Christie murder mystery set in the early 1950s and so follows on in the British tradition from ‘Blithe Spirit’. Costumes and props are being gathered to ensure audiences will get the full ‘1950s’ experience.

The play begins when a strange notice appears in the morning paper of a perfectly ordinary small English village, Chipping Cleghorn: ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m. Friends accept this, the only intimation.’

This comes as a great surprise to Letitia Blacklock, the owner of Little Paddocks, as she has no idea what the notice means; she didn't place it and none of her companions knows more than she. Miss Blacklock decides to take it in her stride and prepares herself to have guests that evening. Naturally, the villagers are intrigued by this notice, and several of them appear on the doorstep with awkward reasons but a definite interest.

As the clock strikes 6:30, the lights go out and a door swings open……….

Preview @ 2:00pm Sunday 2 July
Matinees @ 2:00pm 9, 15, 16 July
Evenings @ 7:30pm 8, 13, 14, 20, 21, 22 July
