Behind the scenes of Miss Marple
Agatha Christie and Margaret Rutherford are two national treasures who became friends when Rutherford played Christie’s spinster heroine Miss Marple on screen. But for various reasons and objections from both women, the successful cinema franchise nearly didn’t get made. Murder, Margaret and Me is play by Wig Productions, starring EastEnders’ Lin Blakeley, that explores the real-life story of the two women. It’s one of friendship, identity and the achievements of women in the long-lost world of the silver screen.
Churchill Theatre, High Street, Bromley BR1 1HA. September 26 – 28 at 7:30pm and additionally 2:30pm on Thursday & Saturday. Admission: £19.50/concessions available.
