A Murder is Announced

Agatha Christie's, A Murder Is Announced

Detective  –  Crime  –  WhoDunit?

Agatha Christie's, A Murder Is AnnouncedTickets £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for concessions, £19.00 for a family ticket.
7:30pm Wednesday 18th April until Saturday 21st April at the Beverley Memorial Hall,
with licensed bar (except Wednesday).

Beverley Theatre Company (BTC) are pleased to announce that Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple will be appearing at the Memorial Hall in their production of ‘A Murder is Announced’, an adaption of the Christie story by Leslie Darbon.

The family and friends of Mrs. Blacklock are all bemused when the weekly copy of the Chipping Cleghorn Gazette arrives with a startling announcement in the personal column – that a murder is to take place at their home, that very day at 6.30pm. As more people, including a certain Miss Marple, pop in to check what is going on, the scene is set to see exactly what will happen when the clock reaches the appointed time.

When a death does occur, it is up to Inspector Craddock to solve the crime – but can he do it without the help of Miss Marple, and before anyone else dies……..?

‘A Murder is Announced’ is directed by Cheryl Giles, who previously took control of BTC’s production of Alan Ayckbourn’s ‘RolePlay’.

This production sees the return of many familiar faces from BTC’s previous hugely successful staging of ‘The Vicar of Dibley’, with Zoe Conley, Emma Drew, Denise Dyble, Tony Musgrave, Nev Slater, Colin Walls and Bill Watts being joined by BTC stalwarts Pat McKenzie and Angela Chapman, and debuts from Kate Lindsay, Sarah Burnell and Paul Thomas.

The play will be performed with kind permission from Samuel French Ltd, at 7.30pm, from Wednesday 18th April until Saturday 21st April at the Beverley Memorial Hall, Lairgate, Beverley with licensed bar (except Wednesday). Tickets are priced at £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for concessions and £19.00 for a family ticket. Tickets can be purchased:

Synopsis: ‘A young well-to-do couple, living in a posh docklands apartment, have planned a civilised occasion where they hope to introduce their respective parents and also announce their engagement. The tense situation escalates with the arrival of two unexpected guests, a feisty lap-dancing gangster’s moll and her burly gun-toting minder. What her parents (a bigoted northern stereotype and his dim twittering wife) and his mother (a toy-boy chasing lush) find when they arrive reveals that the bourgeois guests, under their respective veneers, are far more frightening than the gate crashers.

Amazing Grace – John Newton

John Newton, Amazing Grace

John Newton, Amazing Grace Theatre in Beverley, East Yorkshire

John Newton – Amazing Grace

He had been press-ganged into the navy at a young age, then deserted to return to the girl he loved but was flogged for his efforts. John Newton feels he has nothing to live for. Making his way into the harsh world of the eighteenth century transatlantic slave trade, he makes his living as an abusive trafficker of human flesh. He is a man beyond redemption, making enemies of all he meets, on his way to hell. Then one stormy night, with his ship going down, he faces certain death…and nothing is the same again. This is a powerfully moving story of slavery, freedom and the remarkable power of love and grace to transform a life.
