A Murder Is Announced
by Leslie Darbon
Adapted from Agatha Christie’s novel
Directed by Carol Becker
Assistant Director Liz Reinhardt

Produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete
May 16 – June 21, 2008
The Chipping Cleghorn Gazette has a peculiar ad posted in the personal section stating, “A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October the thirteenth, at Little Paddocks - at six-thirty p.m.” Everyone living at Little Paddocks is skeptical if this is hoax… or if there is truth to the column. When a mystery man arrives at the aforementioned time attempting to kill Miss Blacklock, a murder does indeed take place, but it is the killer who is found dead. In true Agatha Christie style, this classic whodunit has many suspects, each with their own motives. Inspector Craddock is on the case interviewing those present at the murder while gathering clues and other pertinent details. When another death occurs, the Inspector is assisted by the ultimate sleuth, Miss Marple, who ultimately solves the case.

This comical mystery has many twists and turns. It is not your ordinary open-and-shut case
