The Mirror Crack’d

Palace Theatre, Southend-on-Sea

Mon 28 Nov - Sat 3 Dec

ST: The Mirror Crack’d

Miss Marple returns to the stage…

1960s England and a wind of change is blowing through the land.

It has even reached the sleepy village of St. Mary Mead. There’s a new housing estate to make the villagers curious and fearful. And even stranger, a rich American film star has bought the Manor House.

Jane Marple, confined to a chair after an accident, is wondering if life has passed her by.

Then there is a vicious murder, and Miss Marple must unravel a web of lies, tragedy and danger.

This adaptation of Agatha Christie’s famous novel brings real emotional depth and psychological insight to a thrilling story of revenge and the dark secrets that we all hide.

But can anything be hidden from Miss Marple, the sweet old lady with mind like a steel trap?

A brand-new production of Rachel Wagstaff’s acclaimed adaptation produced by the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art, the smash-hit comedy Invincible and the acclaimed Birdsong.

Starring Susie Blake as Miss Marple (Victoria Wood’s As Seen on TV, Coronation Street, Mrs. Brown’s Boys).

‘Playing Miss Marple is every actors dream over the age of 50. To play a bright, independent, older woman is surprising and exciting for the period it was written in as well as in our society today’ Susie Blake

“Wagstaff finds new depths in Marple” (The Times)
