Reasons for trip

As you might have seen from previous reviews, we try to visit Malvern theatre 2-3 times a year as they always feature well-known actors (last review was of David Suchet in The importance of Being Ernest), and this was no exception.

“Glenda” from Last of the Summer Wine (Sarah Thomas) did a great job as the dippy Aunt who died suddenly. We were a bit disappointed by Miss Marple though, played by Mrs Bucket’s sister Daisy in Keeping up Appearances (Judy Cornwell). She had a very weak voice, was very wooden and hesitant, and was without that spark of intelligent inquisitiveness we associate with the sleuth.

The other actors played their parts well, especially the inspector, and it was true to the original story. We just felt a bit underwhelmed by the end. Glenda would have made a much more lively Miss Marple! A matinee performance is always great, starting at 2.30pm and generally mid-week plus Saturdays. It always feels a bit decadent to come out of the theatre and it is still tea-time! Reasonable value at £14.50 each as concession.
