Lily-Rose (Age 16) - ★★★★

"The play starts of with a mysterious announcement in the local newspaper, that there will be a murder at 6.30pm on Friday 13th at Lilttle Padocks. Which is the home of Mrs Letitia Blacklock (Letty) and her eclectic mix of lodgers. What appears to be a welcoming home, one soon realises that not all is what it seems in this murder mystery. This Whodunnit did not disappoint, with a stylish set design and fabulous costumes. The plot was full of twists and turns that kept you guessing until the very end, with many jokes on the way. The troublesome Hungarian maid Mitzi provides the most laughs with her paranoia and anxious state that she is the soon to be victim. Strong performances from the whole cast. A must see if you are a Miss Marple fan."
