About The Mirror Crack'd
Gaiety Theatre, Dublin - March 2019 Production:
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 begins to question her place in the world 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?
This thrilling new play, based on Agatha Christie's novel and featuring Susie Blake (Coronation Street, Mrs Brown’s Boys) and Simon Shepherd (Peak Practice), explores how we all colour our own memories, our own truths, to disguise the darkness that lies within.
In this rich, psychological drama, everyone has a secret…
