HHTheatreCo are very proud to present

The Hollow by Agatha Christie

A leisurely weekend explodes into murder at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell, arguably Christie’s finest comic grande dame. Dr. Cristow, a Harley Street Surgeon, is at the centre of the trouble when, assembled in one place, we find his dull but devoted wife Gerda, his mistress and prominent sculptor Henrietta and his former lover and Hollywood film star Veronica. Also visiting are Edward and Midge, whose romantic assertions are likewise thrown into the mix. As the list of romantic associations grows, so does the list of potential suspects when Cristow is shot dead. Nearly everyone has a motive but only one of them did the deed, but who actually did the murder has to be discoverd by Inspector Colquhoun and Sergent Penny

Put the show dates in your diary and we’ll look forward to welcoming you at the Boxmoor Playhouse for an evening of intrigue and suspense - Whodunnit? Come along and find out - bet you won’t work it out before the end.
