In her own inimitable style, Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot, where murder lurks around every corner. The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until, at the last, nerve-shredding moment, the identity and the motive are finally revealed.

The cast for the 2015 tour includes Eastenders’ Mark Homer as Giles Ralston, and Jonathan Sidgwick from Hollyoaks as Mr Paravicini. William Ilkley joins from the West End production of The Mousetrap as Major Metcalf.

It runs from Monday September 7 to Saturday September 12 at 7.30pm, with matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday. Call 01604 624811 or visit for tickets.
