The Hollow by Agatha Christie

18th - 22nd Jan 2022

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £15.00 Concessions: £13.00


Description

All is going well as Sir Henry Angkatell gathers family and friends for a long weekend at his grand rural estate - until a body is found in the garden room.

The stage is set for a detective tale full of intrigue, with murky undertones of domestic jealousy that place everyone from the servants hall up to the drawing room under suspicion.  

Once again we’re proud to present a classic country house whodunnit from the pen of the Queen of Crime as our January winter warmer.

Though the original 1946 novel featured Poirot, Christie adapted her story for the stage by replacing the Belgian sleuth with the tough-talking Inspector Colquhoun of Scotland Yard and his raffish sergeant.

Our January detective drama is always very popular, so make sure you book early!
