A Murder is Announced

Has anyone seen the recent production of A Murder is Announced? It has just come to Australia and I saw it last night and found very worthwhile. I would be interested to know if anyone has seen it and what their thoughts of it were.

    I was lucky enough to go to both the Sydney and Melbourne opening nights. I definitely recommend seeing it twice! The book the play is based on is my all-time favourite Miss Marple book (and my second-favourite after Death On The Nile.) I love the Joan Hickson film, and have watched it many times (possibly the most faithful film of any Agatha Christie story.) So, I do know this story very well. Even so, on watching the play a second time I noticed a lot more clues I missed the first time! The cast are brilliant too. I thought Judi Farr was an exceptional Miss Marple, and really looked the part.
  • Nice to have someone from Australia on this forum! I found Judi Farr's portrayal of Miss Marple excellent as well and I also thought the actress (not sure of her name) who played Mitzi did very well.

  • Yes, well I found the Australian version very well produced, not sure how the British version will compare but hopefully for your sake it is fantastic.
