The weather was sunny 75.. I wore jeans with a cardigan and sandals; children and adults alike were dressed in costumes; inside was appropriately cooled; there's a little snack bar at the back corner of the "theater"; kids got to sit on the floor by the stage.

A vintage Agatha Christie whodunnit, this 1930 hit marked the stage entrance of Dame Agatha’s most popular detective, Hercule Poirot, into the mystery world.
