We were pleasantly surprised at this charming outdoor venue - very beautiful and peaceful. The actors did a wonderful job. They served snacks & hot chocolate during intermission. Tip: Bring a little stadium chair to put on top of the bench for back support and a blanket. Overall a wonderful experience and highly recommended!

Description

by Agatha Christie

Twists, turns, and things that are not what they seem abound, of course, as Clarissa, the younger second wife of Henry Hailsham-Brown, amuses herself in deception and flirtation in their rented country home. However, when the current spouse of Henry’s first wife, an odious sort, turns up dead at her very feet, Clarissa must be resourceful indeed. Her young stepdaughter hated and feared the dead man, and Henry himself is bringing home a diplomat on a secret mission, so the whole thing must be cleared up posthaste. Despite Clarissa’s best efforts, the police show up, and a series of deceptions within deceptions foment a neat, exaggerated, and quite attractive puzzle.
