AGATHA CHRISTIE'S THE MIRROR CRACK'D


By MTG editorial


An NCPA Production of the Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative Production

A house-bound Miss Mistry (Shernaz Patel) is visited by her friend and rival in crime, Superintendent of Police Daniel D'Mello (Denzil Smith), following a glamorous drinks party that ends in murder.

Set in 1976, the mystery revolves around a fading Bollywood film star, Mamta (Sonali Kulkarni) making her comeback in films. Why did she disappear from the silver screen; why has she moved to the old Portuguese manor house, Casa Braganza, in a sleepy, Goan town; and who would want to kill her?

This traditional whodunnit has been re-imagined to focus on the 'why' as much as the 'who'. Replaying and re-examining events from a variety of perspectives, the unexpected staging explores how we try to shape our memories but end up being shaped by them.

Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative joined forces to produce the first ever English language adaptation of the Christie novel; The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side which premièred in February 2019. The adaptation was written by Rachel Wagstaff whose other work includes commercial theatre adaptations such as Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. The ambition of the production was to bring together the Agatha Christie fans and devotees with the new generation of television whodunnit drama audiences through an innovative interpretation of this classic novel, led by director Melly Still.
