A SHORESIDE THEATRE MID-WINTER MYSTERY THRILLER
Is Lucy, presiding over her English country home just as nutty as she seems ? In fact, is she for real ?
Agatha Christie, one of the great mystery writers of all time brilliantly displays her genius in this winning thriller as she directs the suspense this way and that. But there are also many laughs. It is actually a lot of fun.
Sir Henry Angkatell and his wife Lucy have invited family members, most of whom are related by marriage or birth, to a weekend gathering at their rural manor. It’s not too difficult to predict who will be the victim but figuring out the killer is harder as everyone has a cause and is guilty of something. Suspects, secrets, suspense and red herrings abound.
This is a play about great characters as much as a murder mystery. One after another they come on with their dramatic problems. The suspense can be agonizing but some clues are dropped along the way as to the identity of the killer. Otherwise, you’ll be enthralled and entertained at THE PUMPHOUSE, Takapuna and find out at the end.
