(cancelled) Murder, Margaret and Me by Philip Meeks
Sat 30th May 2020
MURDER, MARGARET AND ME presented by The Broad Horizons Company
A thrilling comedy by Philip Meeks
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.) Tickets £11, (concessions for people under 25 years) available from Harborough Theatre box office mornings Tuesdays and Saturdays 9.30 – 12.30, and online.
