A Murder is Announced – Fall 2013

Park Players Detroit - A Murder Is AnnouncedWhat better way to enjoy the Halloween season than with a murder mystery? The Park Players are proud to invite you for a night of suspense and surprises as they perform Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced, adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon.

Reflecting the lifestyle and morality of 1950s England, the play is set in the old Victorian home of Miss Letitia Blacklock, who has opened her house to several boarders. The occupants include Miss Blacklock’s niece and nephew, her old school chum, and a single working mother. It should come as no surprise to fans of Christie that no one is exactly who they say they are. Soon enough, mixed motives and murder create the scene for an unforgettable evening of mystery.  Come along as determined inspector Craddock doggedly traces the twists and turns of the surprising plot, and the indomitable Miss Marple steps in to provide the final, brilliant solution!
