Like bees to pollen, ants to honey, and the English to sugary tea, we are drawn to the scene of a crime. Usually the crime in question has already been committed. Yes - usually... Leslie Darbon's A Murder is Announced - adapted from the novel by Agatha Christie - prompts disturbing thoughts about the sanity of a group of people who convene for what could be their own very public demise. But it also introduces us to passionate young lovers, village eccentrics, European fanatics, and Miss Jane Marple, in whom forensic brilliance battles chronic rheumatism for the good of nice people across Britain.

This is a play in which audiences will wonder 'whodunnit' amongst a group of tightly-knit friends, all of whom knew someone 'would-do-it'...
