Some call Agatha Christies A Murder Is Announced her most ingenious murder mystery. You can decide if thats true at this production by Theatre Suburbia. The grande dame of the good, old-fashioned whodunit put together an intriguing thriller, and the stage adaptation by Leslie Darbon brings the whole tale to devilish life. It starts with a little ad in the local paper that reads, A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, Oc-tober 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6.30 p.m. Of course, this being jolly, mid-century England, everyone thinks its all a game. What fun! But once the happy crowd shows up to play, the lights go out and a dead body appears. Its up to Miss Marple, one of Christies most charming detectives, to fig-ure out whos done the dirty deed. 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Through May 14. 4106 Way Out West Drive.
