A classic Agatha Christie tale of murder and ingenuity will soon be gracing the stage at Beccles Public Hall.

‘A Murder is Announced’ will appear in the town from Thursday, May 24, to Friday May 25.

The performance the Bungay Theatre Group has staged its spring production in Beccles.

In the play the villagers of Chipping Cleghorn are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local Gazette which reads ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 5, at Little Paddocks at 6.30pm. Friends please accept this, the only intimation.’

What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain. There is no shortage of suspects or motives.
