A MURDER mystery looks set to be solved in Malvern when Miss Marple makes an appearances in the town next week.

The popular Agatha Christie sleuth will take centre stage at Malvern Theatres between Wednesday (September 2) and Saturday (September 5) as part of Middle Ground Theatre Company’s production of A Murder is Announced.

The mystery begins when residents of Chipping Cleghorn read an advert in the local newspaper that a murder will take place on Friday at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock.

Unable to resist, the group gather at the house at the appointed time, when the lights go out and a gun is fired.

Enter Miss Marple, who must unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of the killer.

Judy Cornwell and Diane Fletcher, who have distinguished careers spanning over 50 years on stage and screen, are among the star performers in the play.

Judy is probably best known for her much loved portrayal of Daisy in the hugely successful TV sit-com Keeping Up Appearances, while Diane is forever immortalised as Elizabeth Urquhart in House Of Cards.

They are joined by Tom Butcher, who played PC Steve Loxton in The Bill and Dr Marc Elliott in Doctors, Sarah Thomas, who played Glenda Wilkinson in Last Of The Summer Wine for 24 years, Easterders actress Rachel Bright, and Dean Smith, off Waterloo Road and Last Tango In Halifax.
