Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced

June 25 @ 19:30 to 22:00

Agatha Christie A Murder is Announced

Bijou Theatre Productions returns with their annual dedication to the ‘Queen of Crime’, Agatha Christie. In the peaceful village of Chipping Cleghorn, where ‘nothing ever happens’, an advertisement in the local newspaper causes quite a stir. A murder is announced, due to take place that very same evening.

The scene of the crime will be Little Paddocks, home to Letitia Blacklock and her guests. Whether the advertisement is a joke, a game, or a warning, it attracts plenty of interest; including the keen eye of local sleuth, Miss Marple. When the moment arrives, there is another shock for all in attendance, this time worthy of making the headlines! The dramatic events of the night only lead to further questions the following morning, with the arrival of the police.

Join Miss Marple, as she delves into an intricate web of secrets, history, and the nosiest of nosy neighbours. Working with Inspector Craddock and his trusted Sergeant, what will the trio uncover? As blackmail, threats, secret identities, and more shocking revelations come to light, anyone could be a suspect. The stakes only grow higher, will amateur sleuthing be enough to crack the case in this gripping tale?

Bijou is no stranger to a thriller, hot off the success of ‘Gaslight’ in April, and their winter thriller ‘Dangerous Obsession’, both of which were excellently received.

With a stalwart cast, meticulously directed by Richard Bearne and Sarah Caplan, this is sure to be a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seats until the final curtain.

Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursdays 4 June – 25 July – 19:30 | £5-£16 F

This amateur production of ‘A Murder is Announced’ is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. https://www.concordtheatricals.co.uk/
