Murder, Margaret and Me
I'll be appearing in the play Murder, Margaret and Me by Philip Meeks at the Leeds Goth Festival on Thursday 17th October 2019 at The Lending Room in Leeds. Directed by Samantha Hindman and also starring Nance Turner and Samantha Hindman. The one night only performance is a charity event to raise funds for PAFRAS, helping local refugees and asylum seekers. From the organisers:
"This year sees THE PENNY MAGPIE THEATRE COMPANY return after their fantastic production at last years's event with "Murder, Margaret & Me":
The ‘funniest woman alive' harbours a dark secret and ‘the Queen of Crime’ has the investigative instincts of her greatest creations.
Margaret Rutherford and Agatha Christie: two national treasures behind one of the British film industry’s greatest franchises. Rutherford is famed for bringing Christie’s beloved spinster, Miss Marple, to the screen. However, Agatha Christie did not approve of Rutherford as Marple, and Margaret Rutherford had no interest in being involved with anything so sordid as murder.
Nevertheless, with the help of the Spinster with a twinkle in her eye, Rutherford and Christie are brought together and an unlikely friendship emerges, through their shared experiences of life and loss, tragedy and tea, murder and Marple. A production not to be missed! Tickets £5"
We'll also be taking the show to London for one night only, to The Hen and Chickens in Islington on Sunday 27th October 2019.
