She was called ’the funniest woman alive’.  But the life of actress Margaret Rutherford was far from a comedy.

She was hiding a dark family secret.  On screen as Miss Marple in the 1960s she solved crimes and brought wrong doers to justice.

It takes Queen of Crime  Agatha Christie to unearth Margaret’s tragic tale in Murder, Margaret and Me.

Writer Philip Meeks reveals the sensational story of Margaret Rutherford’s past in this comedy thriller.

"The whole production is highly amusing, touching and unpredictable" Theatre Bubble

"Meeks’ words are well served by Nichola McAuliffe as Christie and Susie Blake who might well be the reincarnation of Rutherford so precise are her mannerisms" Yorkshire Post  ★★★★

"Worthy of a West End run"  One&Other
