Agatha Christie's

A Murder is Announced

Adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon

In A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie, the story begins with an unusual

advertisement in the local newspaper of Chipping Cleghorn. The ad announces a

murder that is to take place at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock, at 6:30 pm

on a specific date. The announcement is met with a mix of disbelief and curiosity by

the residents, who decide to gather at the house at the specified time to witness the event.

As the clock strikes 6:30, the lights go out, and a masked intruder bursts into the room,

firing a gun. When the lights are turned back on, the intruder has vanished, and the

only casualty is a young Swiss man, Rudi Scherz, who is shot in the arm. The residents

soon realize that the murder announcement was not a hoax, and they are now faced

with a real crime.
