In this 45th anniversary year, ITR Theatre Company is delighted to bring a whodunit to the stage by arguably one of the best mystery writers of all time, Agatha Christie. “A Murder is Announced” was first published in 1950 and was Christie’s 50th book. This current play adaptation was written by Leslie Darbon in 1977.
An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.
