Agatha Christie play first UK staging

May 17, 2018 by

Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative are to produce the first UK stage adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple thriller The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side. The Mirror Crack’d will be a European Premiere, opening at Salisbury Playhouse on 15 February, 2019 before touring to Dublin, Cambridge and including Cardiff’s New Theatre between March 26 and April 6, 2019.

The iconic Marple mystery from the world’s best-selling author of all time will be adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff (Flowers for Mrs Harris, Birdsong) and directed by Melly Still (Coram Boy, My Brilliant Friend).  Casting is still to be announced.

Times are changing. Girls are wearing trousers and Hollywood has come to a sleepy English village in the shape of a beautiful film star. Miss Marple is left to feel that the world has no need of her now until a mysterious death calls into question the past of all those present. Everyone’s version of events is different.  Can Miss Marple unravel the tangle of lies?
