Full casting announced for UK Tour of Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mirror Crack’d’

Original Theatre has announced full casting for the brand new production of Rachel Wagstaff’s acclaimed adaptation of Agatha Christies THE MIRROR CRACKD.

The production will be directed by Philip Franks and will begin its UK Tour at Devonshire Park, Eastbourne on 8 September 2022.

The final members of the cast to be announced are Oliver Boot as Chief Inspector Craddock, Lorenzo Martelli as Guiseppe Renzo, Chrystine Symone as Lola Brewster and Holly Smith in the ensemble. They join the previously announced Susie Blake as Miss Marple, Sophie Ward as Marina Gregg, Joe McFadden as Jason Rudd, Veronica Roberts as Dolly Bantry, Mara Allen as Cherry Baker, Sarah Lawrie as Ella Zielinsky, Jules Melvin as Heather Leigh and David Partridge as Cyril Leigh.

In 1960s England, a wind of change is blowing through the land. It has even reached the sleepy village of St Mary Mead. There’s a new housing estate, which alarms the villagers as much as it intrigues them and, even more unsettling, a rich American film star has bought the manor house. Jane Marple, confined to a chair after an accident, is wondering if life has passed her by. Then there is a shocking murder, and Miss Marple must unravel a web of lies, danger and tragedy. This adaptation of Agatha Christie’s famous novel brings real emotional depth and psychological insight to a thrilling story of secrets, loss and revenge.

THE MIRROR CRACKD will be directed by Philip Franks and designed by Adrian Linford, with lighting design by Emma Chapman, sound design by Max Pappenheim, casting by Ellie Collyer-Bristow CDG and movement direction by Sophia Vi.

The UK Tour will be produced by Alastair Whatley and Tom Hackney for The Original Theatre Company, who recently won a Critics’ Circle Award for their outstanding contribution to British Theatre during lockdown.
