The Original Theatre Company presents THE MIRROR CRACK'D Adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff Directed by Philip Franks Miss Marple returns to the stage... 1960s England and a wind of change is blowing through the land. It has even reached the sleepy village of St. Mary Mead. There's a new housing estate to make the villagers curious and fearful. And even stranger, a rich American film star has bought the Manor House. Jane Marple, confined to a chair after an accident, is wondering if life has passed her by. Then there is a vicious murder, and Miss Marple must unravel a web of lies, tragedy and danger. This adaptation of Agatha Christie's famous novel brings real emotional depth and psychological insight to a thrilling story of revenge and the dark secrets that we all hide. But can anything be hidden from Miss Marple, the sweet old lady with mind like a steel trap? A brand-new production of Rachel Wagstaff's acclaimed adaptation produced by the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Alan Bennett's The Habit of Art, the smash-hit comedy Invincible and the acclaimed Birdsong.
