“The Hollow” is a brilliant murder mystery set in a classic English country house after WW II. A weekend gathering at The Hollow, Sir Henry Angkatell’s place just outside of London, goes deathly awry. While guests unpack, dress for dinner and partake in pre-dinner cocktails, the good-looking Dr. John Cristow finds himself surrounded by an old flame, his wife and his current mistress, all of whom fan their smoldering desires toward him. The festive weekend comes to a screeching halt when a guest is suddenly murdered. Everyone has opportunities and motives. It is the charming Inspector Colquhoun and his down-to-earth assistant Sergeant Penny who must try to follow Christie’s well-crafted twists and turns to unmask the killer.
Christie is the best-selling novelist of all time, with sales of her novels reaching more than two billion. In the 1930s she began adapting her stories to the stage and became a record-breaking playwright (the London production of “The Mousetrap” is the longest continuously running play in history – 63 years!). “The Hollow” is based on her 1946 book of the same name and was first produced on stage in 1951. It ran for eleven months in London and Queen Mary, being a Christie fan, particularly requested to see it.
$37, $40, $43.
