Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative are thrilled to announce the first ever UK stage adaptation of Agatha Christie’s much-loved Miss Marple thriller, A Mirror Crack’d will open at Salisbury Playhouse on 15 February before touring to Dublin, Cambridge and Cardiff (March 25th).
Adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstraff and directed by Melly Still, The Mirror Crack’d will be a European Premiere.
Graeme Farrow, Artistic Director, Wales Millennium said; “We are hugely excited to bring a dynamic, thoroughly modern Marple to the stage and to work again with Rachel Wagstaff and Melly Still. This is also our first collaboration with Wiltshire Creative. Co-producing across nations and regions is extremely important in order to create new work today. We hope that The Mirror Crack’d will provide Agatha Christie fans with a new twist and attract new audiences to her work”.
This year, during the week commencing 19 February, students will be encouraged to give a little back to the community as part of student volunteer week. To celebrate the 17th anniversary of student volunteer week, we thought we’d share a profile of one or our volunteers, to show you that volunteering is not just something you do for other’s. Lauren Thornell, a music student at Cardiff university and a regular on our volunteer scheme, took the time to speak to us about her work here.
Laura Fear is 25 years old and lives just outside of Cardiff. She signed up to our volunteering scheme back in 2017 and has since become one of our top volunteers, clocking up over 62 shifts in a matter of months. We put together some questions and had a chat with her to find out just what makes her keep coming back!
