NCPA Production of the Wales Millennium Centre and Wiltshire Creative Production

 

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.    

A house-bound Miss Mistry (Shernaz Patel) is visited by her friend and rival in crime, Senior Inspector Darius Chinoy (Denzil Smith), following a glamorous drinks party that ends in murder.

Set in 1976, the mystery revolves around a fading Bollywood film star, Mamta Ghosh, (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, Briganza Mansion, 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.


Writer: Agatha Christie

Adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff

Reimagined for an Indian Audience by Ayeesha Menon
