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 thrilling new adaptation of Agatha Christie's famous novel, adapted by Rachel Wagstaff (The Girl On The Train and The Da Vinci Code), 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?

Starring Susie Blake as Miss Marple (Victoria Wood's As Seen on TV, Coronation Street, Mrs. Brown's Boys), Sophie Ward (A Very British Scandal, Holby City, Land Girls) and Joe McFadden (Holby City, Heartbeat and Strictly Come Dancing 2017 winner).
