“Appointment with Death” in The Norbury Theatre

Appointment with DeathThe new production, “Appointment with Death” by Agatha Christie, is coming to The Norbury Theatre in September. An amateur production presented by The Norbury Players in association with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD

This year the theatre will be seeing a return to one of Agatha Christies classic murder mysteries. Originally published in the year 1938 Christie adapted the book as a play of the same name in 1945. It is notable for being one of the most radical reworkings of the novel Christie ever did, not only eliminating Hercule Poirot from the story, but also changing the ending of the story itself, meaning that even those familiar with the book might be in for a surprise.

It’s 1945 and Jerusalem’s King Solomon Hotel plays host to a party of visiting tourists. Among them is the Boynton family, headed by the elderly Mrs Boynton and accompanied by her loyal stepchildren, a young doctor and her colleague, the brash Alderman Higgs and the sophisticated Lady Westholme alongside her travel companion.

Together they embark on a trip to an archeological site in Petra, where the dark secrets of the past and present are unearthed, as one of them has an appointment with death.
