The actors were excellent and very expressive. You could tell that each actor put immense effort into being their character. Very enjoyable and the play even had a fair amount of humor.

Loved it. We've seen it before and can never quite remember the ID of the murderer until the very end! Good performances by entire cast, but especially the female lead. With so many cast members on such a small stage, it is a wonder how smoothly...continued

A very lackluster production. There were a couple good performances, but they could not make up for the poor directing and the lack of chemistry between the cast. The end was absolutely awful. It was so awkward and strange and happened too quickly...continued

This was an enjoyable experience.
It did not quite meet my expectations of a suspenseful Agatha Christie Story, but that is not the fault of the actors. As always at Desert Stages, they did an admirable job.

Some of the actors were great while a couple of them were less than mediocre. But the set was quite nicely done for a small community theater and the staff was very customer friendly, so the overall experience was positive. Some nice entertainment...continued

The story is a classic British mystery and Desert Stages' presentation is superb. Any one of the participants could have committed the crime and countless misdirections and twists and turns will keep you guessing until the real "perp" is revealed...continued

Enjoyed the performance-very familiar with the play-seen it twice-once in London--good Agtaha Christie who dun it! story
Second act dragged- sometimes actors were difficult to hear-British accent not very good.
Apprecitated the time and effort...continued

The venue isn't bad, except that the carpeting of the entrance lobby should be vacuumed prior to the show. The Actor's Cafe is a tiny theater with some tiered comfortable seating, and some banquet chairs. Since it is General Admission, arrive...continued
