    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.

    Being a Christie fan for life I was drawn immediately to the title but then upon reading the play found a heartbreaking account of an imagined conversation between Agatha and Archie that is so painfully real that it just jumped off the page with a sucker punch to the gut. We all know how solitary the writer's life can be and O'Grady calls attention to this fact with such realism that it made me look over my shoulder at my own life and the Archies who were standing there waiting for something other than a pen for dinner.

    A beautiful piece of imagined history that very well could have happened. O'Grady deftly shapes Agatha and Archie into two fully-fleshed out, real people that you could imagine meeting. Their dialogue is devastating and their relationship is fully relatable. At the end, Agatha makes her choice--and it is no surprise that Archie and Agatha did not last. Agatha truly loved one thing--and she stands by it all the way to the end. The play is delightful and simple, but it should not be underestimated--it packs a punch.

    If you are, as I am, a hopeless fan of Agatha Christie, this play will most assuredly delight. O’Grady fantasizes about the genesis of Christie’s most famous detective. How did the Belgian with the “little grey cells” and signature moustache get his name? The imagined banter between Agatha and her husband is most decidedly British, and captures the wit and rhythms of the famed authoress. And, as in any of her works... the mystery is beautifully solved in the story’s final moments. Thoroughly loved this!
