THE NORBURY Players will be uravelling an Agatha Christie mystery for audiences at the Friar Street venue this weekend and next.
And the opening night of Appointment With Death yesterday (Thursday) coincided with the author’s 125th birthday.
The story is one of the author’s most popular books. It is set in the 1930s and follows a number of tourists during a visit to the ancient city of Petra.
What starts out as a pleasant expedition soon takes a dark turn as the travellers come face to face with the worst humanity has to offer and try to avoid a fate worse than death.
The remaining shows take place tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) and from Thursday to Saturday next week (September 24 to 26).
Performances start at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10 (£9 for concessions).
They are available online at norburytheatre.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01905 770154.
