Judy Dewey talks about Agatha Christie's life and local connections.
Sinodun Players are proud to present Agatha Christie's A Murder is Announced, based on her 1950 book of the same name. This production celebrates 70 years of the Players and 40 years since the opening of the Corn Exchange, as Agatha Christie was President of Sinodun Players for 25 years from 1950 until 1975.
An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s house. The victim is not one of the regular occupants of the house but an unknown and unexpected visitor. Come and enjoy a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities and a second death as a determined Inspector follows the twists and turns, with Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution.

To Hell in a Handbag: The Secret Lives of Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism.
While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity … and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic.
“To Hell in a Handbag is a delight – beautifully written and acted with exquisite comic timing.” Daily Mail.
