Agatha Christie: The Mirror Crack'd

26 March – 6 April 2019

New Theatre

Times are changing. Girls are wearing trousers and Hollywood has come to a sleepy English village in the shape of a beautiful film star.

Miss Marple begins to question her place in the world until a mysterious death calls into question the past of all those present. Everyone's version of events is different. Can Miss Marple unravel the tangle of lies?

This thrilling new play, based on Agatha Christie's novel, explores how we all colour our own memories, our own truths, to disguise the darkness that lies within.

In this rich, psychological drama, everyone has a secret… 

Susie Blake and Simon Shepherd join the cast for the first ever UK stage adaptation of Agatha Christie’s The Mirror Crack’d.

Miss Marple will be played by Susie Blake, known as Hilary Nicholson in Mrs Brown’s Boys, Bev Unwin in Coronation Street and The Continuity Announcer in Victoria Wood As Seen on TV.

"I’m absolutely thrilled to be taking on this part, I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to play a role like this my whole career. I loved watching the great Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple and always wanted to be her when I was growing up."

Susie Blake

Simon Shepherd will take on the role of the Scotland Yard inspector Dermot Craddock. Best known for playing the role of Dr. Will Preston in the popular ITV television series Peak Practice.

"Dermot Craddock is my first Chief Inspector role and I am delighted to be working with the brilliant Melly Still again on this sharp, fresh adaptation by Rachel Wagstaff."

Simon Shepherd

The Mirror Crack'd is a Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative Production adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff.
