An all-star cast is set to take to the stage for an Agatha Christie murder mystery at Theatre Royal Winchester from Monday 11 – Saturday 16 November.
Presented by Middle Ground Theatre Company, A Murder is Announced – A Miss Marple Mystery features a host of well-known actors with a wealth of experience between them, including Sarah Thomas (Last of the Summer Wine) as the beloved Miss Marple and Tom Butcher (Doctors) as Inspector Craddock. Also starring are Kazia Pelka (Heartbeat and Casualty), Jenny Funnell (As Time Goes By), Lucy Evans (Coronation Street) and Tom Gibbons (BBC Radio 4’s The Archers).

Enter Miss Marple, soon on the case to unravel a complex series of relationships and events, which led to the murder.
A classic whodunit – adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon and produced by the same company who brought to the stage, the best-selling courtroom thriller The Verdict, A Murder is Announced has delighted packed out venues across the UK and Ireland.
