The Mirror Crack'd

Agatha Christie A Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative production
15 February - 9 March 2019 Salisbury Playhouse Main House
The Mirror Crack'd updated


Adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff


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…

Running Time approx: 2 hours and 30 minutes including a 20 minute interval
