Agatha Christie is not happy. Miss Marple is about to be brought to life by Britain’s foremost comedy actress, Margaret Rutherford. The films are destined to become the most successful franchise of 1960’s British cinema. But Christie thinks Rutherford will turn her favourite character into a laughing stock, and Margaret doesn’t want to sully her reputation with something as sordid as murder.

The two women form an unlikely friendship over afternoon tea and gossip until Agatha turns sleuth to uncover the hidden tragedy in Rutherford’s life. Can their bond survive the investigation? Who is the mysterious knitting spinster? What are all the stuffed toys called? Who are the real women behind the public facades of their fame?

Humour, thrills, pathos and sleuthing combine to make this unique play a must for all lovers of crime fiction, secrets and comedy.

(Suitable for audiences aged ten years and above.)

Broad Horizons Theatre Company is a lively small theatre company based in Norfolk and run by Judi Daykin and Rhett Davies. Our aim is to produce the best in established and new writing for touring to theatres, arts centres, rural touring schemes, community and educational venues. Our primary focus is on women’s stories. Famous or forgotten, we believe that it is more necessary than ever to share the lives of some very remarkable women, the events that they took part in and, in many cases, led. Creative women, hard working women, political women, home-makers or educators; there are so many great stories to tell that it is hard to choose between them.
