|The true classic of all
Enter the world of murder, mystery, and the mastermind of Agatha Christie as
City Theatre begins the 12th season with the world’s most popular crime drama
CTC guest director Stephen R. Reynolds directs the production and features the
cliffhanging cast of Stacy Trammell, Levi Gore, Dillon Dority, Alexzandria Siprian,
Elise Odgen, Denver Surgener, Justin Heller, and Darren Scharf.
The scene is set when a group of unsuspecting guests gather in a country house cut off
by the snow and discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst! Who can
it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until, at the last,
nerve-shredding moment, the identity and the motive are finally revealed. In her own
inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie creates an atmosphere of shuddering suspense
and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner!
Crime is terribly revealing. Try and vary your methods as you will, your tastes,
your habits, your attitude of mind, and your soul is revealed by your actions. –
Renowned English writer Agatha Christie, known as the
‘Queen of Crime’, wrote over 66 detective novels and
13 plays. She is best known as the creator of detective
Hercule Poirot and village mystery-solver Miss Marple.
She has sold over 2 billion books and 30 feature films
and 100 television movies have been made from her
works. According to Index Translationum, her books
have been translated into more than 50 different
languages, and her works rank third, after William
Shakespeare and the Bible, as the world’s most widely
published books. Her novel And Then There Were None
deserves special mention with 100 million copies being
sold, and her work TheMousetrap is credited as the world’s longest running play. The
show opened in London’s West End in 1952, and has been running continuously since
with over 23,000 performances. For her noteworthy contribution in the field of detective
stories, she received several awards, including the Grand Master Award and an Edgar
Award, and her created character Poirot is the only fictional character for which The New
York Times published an obituary.
