Agatha Christie and Margaret Rutherford should never have been friends – but they were. Their paths crossed when they found themselves at the heart of one of British cinema’s most successful franchises. However, The Miss Marple film almost didn’t get made. Murder, Margaret and Me is a story of friendship, identity and the achievement of women in the long-lost world of the silver screen.
From the company who brought you The Picture of Dorian Gray, Tilted Wig Productions are delighted to tour this fascinating play which tells the story of two of our greatest and most celebrated national treasures.
Lin Blakley (Eastenders, BBC) will be stepping into the shoes of Agatha Christie for the show, which is directed by Damian Cruden (Artistic Director, Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre). The cast also includes Sarah Parks (Coronation Street, ITV; Richard II, Royal Shakespeare Company) as Margaret Rutherford, and Gilly Tompkins (Gangsta Granny, Garrick Theatre and National Tour; The 3 Emos, Smashing Mirrors Theatre) as the Spinster.
