MIDDLE Ground Theatre Company will return to Mold's Theatr Clwyd with Agatha Christie’s critically acclaimed play A Murder is Announced.

The residents of Chipping Cleghorn are astonished to read an advert in the local newspaper that a murder will take place this coming Friday at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock.

Unable to resist, the group gathers at the house at the appointed time.

Then the lights go out and a gun is fired.

Enter Miss Marple, who must unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of the killer.

A Murder Is Announced can be seen at Theatr Clwyd from October 14-19.

Adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon and directed and designed by Michael Lunney, Agatha Christie’s A Murder Is Announced is a classic Miss Marple mystery.

Now in its fourth year of touring, this lavish production has delighted packed audiences across the UK and Ireland and is brought to you by the company who produced the critically acclaimed courtroom thriller The Verdict.

It stars Sarah Thomas (Last Of The Summer Wine), Kazia Pelka (Heartbeat / World's End / Family Affairs), Tom Butcher (The Bill / Doctors), Jenny Funnell (As Time Goes By), Lucy Evans (Coronation Street) and Tom Gibbons (Johnny Phillips in The Archers).
