Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mirror Crack’d’ To Be Staged At NCPA In Mumbai

Agatha Christie crafted two hugely popular detectives, Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple. The latter features in her 1962 novel The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side, which has been adapted for the stage in a production that will premiere in January at the NCPA.

A classic whodunit set in the fictional village of St Mary Mead, the story follows Miss Marple’s investigation of the suspicious death of local villager Heather Badcock at American actor Marina Gregg’s home. Gregg’s character was immortalised on the silver screen by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1980 film, The Mirror Crack’d.

This production stars Sonali Kulkarni (pictured above), Shernaz Patel, Meher Acharia- Dar, Avantika Akerkar and Suhaas Ahuja and is set in 1976 in an idyllic town in Goa. Kulkarni essays the character of Mamta Ghosh, a Bollywood actor, whose fortunes are on the wane. She throws a glamorous party at her manor only to have it end in murder. Senior inspector Darius Chinoy (Denzil Smith) enlists the help of his friend and rival, Miss Mistry (Shernaz Patel), to get to the bottom of the crime.

The English play is a collaboration between British production companies Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative Production. It’s directed by British theatre director Melly Still, whose credits include adaptations of Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones, Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend, Terry Pratchett’s Nation and Jamila Gavin’s Coram Boy. The play has been adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff, best known for her adaptation of Paula Hawkin’s The Girl on the Train, and has been reimagined for the Indian stage by writer Ayeesha Menon.

When: Thursday, January 30, 2020 to Sunday, February 9, 2020.
Where: Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, NCPA, NCPA Marg, Nariman Point.
