A Murder is Announced - October 2023
Based on Agatha Christie’s 1950 novel of the same name and adapted for the stage in 1977 by Leslie Darbon, “A Murder Is Announced” takes place in the quiet, little village of Chipping Cleghorn, where the residents are astonished to read an advertisement in the local newspaper that gives the date and time a murder will take place at the home of Letitia Blacklock. Unable to resist their curiosity, a group gathers at the house at the appointed time, when the lights go out and gunshots are fired. The body of a stranger is found lying on the drawing room floor. Fortunately, Miss Marple is on hand to help unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of the killer.
The Lord Stirling Theater Company’s production of “A Murder Is Announced” is directed by Peter Curley.
“A Murder Is Announced” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. (www.concordtheatricals.com)
