Leesburg, VA (Oct. 30, 2015) – In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the birth of acclaimed mystery writer Agatha Christie, the Heritage High School Drama Department will present her suspenseful and witty play “A Murder is Announced.”
In this play, an announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s house. The victim is not one of the house’s occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, many twists and turns and a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.
More than 70 students have been working diligently to bring this complex play to life. You’re invited to see their hard work as they turn back the clock and head to Great Britain for this murder mystery gem.
“A Murder is Announced” will be performed at Heritage High School, 520 Evergreen Mill Road, Leesburg on the following dates:
- Thursday, November 5th, at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, November 7th, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
- Thursday, November 12th, at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, November 14th, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 each or $15 for preferred seating.
