A Murder is Announced

By Agatha Christie

Directed by : Katelyn Tormena


An announcement in the local paper reports the time and place of a death in the Victorian home of Miss Blacklock. The victim, however, is not one of the guests, but an unexpected visitor. Concealed identities, mixed motives, and Agatha Christie’s famous heroine, Miss Marple, will leave you at the edge of your seat from opening line to final curtain! Join us as Miss Marple unravels the twists and turns right up to the thrilling climax!
