Join us as we present our annual salute to Dame Christie and her extraordinary work of murder mystery plays. Fiddlers Three is actually the last play Agatha Christie wrote, which combines a thriller theme with comedy situations. It originally opened in Cambridge as Fiddlers Five in 1971, and was rewritten the following year under the new title. The chief conspirators, Sam Fletcher and Sally Blunt, slip from deviousness into actual crime when they try to conceal the identity of a corpse in order to obtain money which they need for legitimate business. To their surprise, the corpse turns out to have been murdered, but by then they are too involved to pull out. The plot is absolute Christie, "too implausible" and the ending is delightfully "forced," but pure Christie.
Tickets are $17 for adults and $15 for students/seniors.
