IN this adaptation of our best loved criminal mastermind, it is no mystery why we are all still falling for Agatha Christie time and time again.

The iconic Marple mystery The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side has been adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff (Flowers for Mrs Harris, Birdsong) and directed by Melly Still (Coram Boy, My Brilliant Friend, The Lovely Bones).

Susie Blake (Midsomer Murders, Cuckoo, The Victoria Wood Show) plays a convincing Miss Marple and Simon Shepherd, best known for playing Dr Will Preston in the popular ITV television series Peak Practice, gives a superb performance of the chief inspector Dermot Caddock.

They are joined by Colin R Campbell (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Broken, Coronation Street) as Cyril Leigh and Julia Hills (EastEnders, Casualty, Outnumbered).

Completing the cast is Suzanna Hamilton, Katherine Manners, Katie Matsell, Davina Moon, Huw Parmenter and Gillian Saker.

In this sharp and fresh adaptation, Hollywood comes to a sleepy English village with the arrival of beautiful film star Marina Gregg. A mysterious death calls upon Miss Marple to untangle the lies shielding the darkest of secrets.

The plot springs its twists upon the audience, who of course, were quite rightly gripped by the stunning performances from the cast who expertly bring this captivating whodunnit to life.

The Mirror Crack’d has started its run on the Main House stage at Salisbury Playhouse until March 9.
