About Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced

An advertisement in a local gazette 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? Find out when the MPS Performing Arts Department presents the winter play, Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced. More than a simple murder mystery, this is a story of redemption set in the throes of post-war muddle and discomfort. The play runs January 16, 17, 18, and 19.
