Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mirror Crack’d’ to be adapted for the stage for the very first time

Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative have announced the first ever UK stage adaptation of Agatha Christie’s much-loved Miss Marple thriller, The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side, which will open at Salisbury Playhouse on 15 February before touring to Dublin, Cambridge and Cardiff.

The iconic mystery will be adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff (Flowers for Mrs Harris, Birdsong) and directed by Melly Still (Coram Boy, My Brilliant Friend). Casting is still to be announced.

Times are changing. Girls are wearing trousers and Hollywood has come to a sleepy English village in the shape of a beautiful film star. Miss Marple is left to feel that the world has no need of her now until a mysterious death calls into question the past of all those present.  Everyone’s version of events is different.  Can Miss Marple unravel the tangle of lies?

Graeme Farrow, Artistic Director, Wales Millennium Centre said:

“We are hugely excited to bring a dynamic, thoroughly modern Marple to the stage and to work again with Rachel Wagstaff and Melly Still. This is also our first collaboration with Wiltshire Creative. Co-producing across nations and regions is extremely important in order to create new work today. We hope that The Mirror Crack’d will provide Agatha Christie fans with a new twist and attract new audiences to her work”.
