A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE Adapted by Leslie Darbon

A strange notice appears in the morning paper of a perfectly ordinary small English village, Chipping Cleghorn: “A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m. Friends accept this, the only intimation.”

This apparently comes as a great surprise to Letitia Blacklock, the owner of Little Paddocks, as she has no idea what the notice means; she didn’t place it and none of her companions knows more than she. Miss Blacklock decides to take it in her stride and prepares herself to have guests that evening. Naturally, the villagers are intrigued by this notice, and several of them appear on the doorstep with awkward reasons but a definite interest.

As the clock strikes 6:30, the lights go out and a door swings open, revealing a man with a blinding torch…
