Judy Cornwell and Diane Fletcher are set to star in A Murder Is Announced at the Lichfield Garrick
The Middle Ground Theatre Company’s lavish production of the classic Miss Marple mystery will run at the theatre from Tuesday 23 to Saturday 27 February 2016.
The residents of Chipping Cleghorn are astonished to read an advert in the local newspaper that a murder will take place this coming Friday at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock, played by House of Cards Actor, Diane Fletcher.
Unable to resist, the group gather at the house at the appointed time, when the lights go out and a gun is fired. Enter Miss Marple, who must unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of the killer.
Both Judy Cornwell and Diane Fletcher have distinguished careers spanning over 50 years on stage and screen. Judy Cornwell is probably best known for her much loved portrayal of Daisy in the hugely successful TV sit-com Keeping Up Appearances, while Diane Fletcher is forever immortalised as Elizabeth Urquhart in House Of Cards. They are joined by Sarah Thomas, who played Glenda Wilkinson in Last Of The Summer Wine for 24 years, and Rachel Bright (Eastenders' Poppy Meadow).
The murder mystery classic has been adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon and directed and designed by Michael Lunney.
A Murder is Announced runs at the Lichfield Garrick from Tuesday 23 to Saturday 27 February 2016.
Tickets cost from £21, and can be booked online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com or by calling Lichfield Garrick’s Box Office on 01543 412121.
Agatha Christie fans will also love the 60th anniversary production of The Mousetrap running at the Lichfield Garrick from Monday 4 to Saturday 9 April 2016.
