    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.

    History brought to life perfectly and the mystery makes it all the more fun. Wonderful!

    The writer fights to keep her relationships.
    That strikes me as an undeniable truth. Few write about this career as interfering with every day life. This play captures Agatha perfectly and uses the English wit. Good for all ages.
