Tred Avon Players Present “A Murder Is Announced”

A delightful who-dun-it for the whole family to enjoy!

The original production was conceived in 1993 and adapted by Leslie Darbon from an Agatha Christie novel, this enchanting whodunit is about a perfectly ordinary small English village thrown into chaos when a notice appears in the local paper, “A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m.”

The people living there have no idea what the ad is about. Several villagers arrive at the house under the false pretenses of “just happened to be in the neighborhood”. At exactly 6:30, the lights go out and a man enters the room shining a flashlight in everyone’s face. Then shots are heard.

What follows is a classic Agatha Christie intrigue of diverse motives, concealed identities, more murder, and an indomitable Inspector to follow the twists and turns of the case. Enjoy intriguing, funny characters and Miss Marple at her best in deciphering the confusing clues and circumstances of the murders with a dramatic confrontation that will keep everyone guessing up to the final curtain.
