The Mysterious Affair at the Christies

    This is a witty and cutting dialogue between two young people whose marriage is freighted by the cost of global conflict, in want, the loss of those close to them, and their own personal incompatibility. It is a brief exchnage which communicates a great deal and you might not blame the solider on leave for becoming frustrated with his wife who is preoccupied with writing her first book. But relationships can often fail in the pursuit of one's passion. It was a rewarding sacrifice, after all. Very well done.

    Just saw this done at Caravan Theatre. The MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT THE CHRISTIE'S is a wonderful slice of life of the Christie's. Wonderful character work and story. It's a peach for any mystery festival or any festival at all. Nicely done.
