Murder at the Vicarage - November 2001

Post  Mike B on Thu Aug 04, 2011 8:56 am

Murder At The Vicarage, By Agatha Christie
Hoghton Village Hall, 1st-3rd November 2001
Hoghton Tower, 8-10th November 2001


The tranquil village of St. Mary Mead, which nestles picturesquely in the rolling hills of the English countryside, is not quite as peaceful as it might first appear.

Over dinner at the vicarage, the vicar, his glamorous young wife Griselda, the handsome artist Lawrence Redding and Hawes, the nervous curate, discuss how they each would murder the odious Colonel Protheroe. Only Miss Marple has the foresight to warn them not to tempt fate.

The next day, Protheroe is found with a bullet in his head, slumped across the writing desk in the vicar's study.

Inspector Slack duly arrives to find that the case is not as simple as it might appear. At first he refuses to believe that a frail and fluffy old maid can help in any way -- but appearances can be deceptive and eventually he has to bow to Miss Marple's intimate knowledge of village life, her superior razor-sharp mind and her surprising knowledge of love and lust...
