Details: Adapted from Agatha Christie's 50th novel, A Murder Is Announced is one of the Queen of Crime's most fiendishly ingenious mysteries. Foul play starts when an innocent-looking notice appears in a village newspaper: "A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th ... " When the villagers gather at the place specified in the paper, they come expecting a joke -- instead, they witness a brutal murder. So convoluted are the circumstances and so slight is the evidence that it takes Miss Marple, the needle-sharp detective, to come in and consult. The Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church Theatre Fellowship presents Leslie Darbon's adaptation of this thrilling whodunit from the Golden Age of Detective Fiction.
