A Murder Is Announced

by Agatha Christie

Monday 4 to Saturday 9 February 2013

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m.’

A childish practical joke? Or a hoax intended to scare poor Letitia Blacklock? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out....

What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns and the inimitable Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution in a dramatic confrontation scene just before the final curtain.

The production stars Dean Gaffney, best known for his eleven years as Robbie Jackson in EastEnders who is also a noted stage actor, Gemma Bissix, another EastEnders star as a child but better known these days for her award-winning role as the villainous Clare Devine in Hollyoaks and Katy Manning, the iconic Doctor Who assistant Jo Grant.

One of Agatha Christie’s best mysteries, this production also boasts a fascinating cast of characters and an affectionate picture of a post WWII English village in which Ian Dickens Productions will yet again deliver an evening of intriguing plots, subterfuge and murder by the Mistress of Whodunits.
