Agatha Christie’s Verdict

Bravo Theatre Company in collaboration with Woollywood Theatre Company are proud to present ‘Verdict’ by Agatha Christie at The Casa on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September.

This is how the famous storyteller herself described Verdict:

“It satisfied me completely. I still think it is the best play I have written, with the exception of Witness for the Prosecution.” Agatha Christie

Synopsis:

Karl Hendryk is a brilliant professor who, with his wife and her cousin, has fled persecution in his homeland and finds himself ensconced in England. The play concerns itself with the relationships the professor has with the women in his life. His wife, Anya, who is suffering from a progressively debilitating disease, her cousin and carer, Lisa, and Helen Rollander, a spoiled student who takes up private lessons with the professor.

Not a murder mystery or a whodunnit but a profound and thoughtful piece that deals with the human experience. Delving deeply into the psychology of relationships and moral philosophy, this is the story of a misguided idealist who loves so intensely it becomes ultimately destructive and unattainable.

Text and performance licence by arrangement with Samuel French UK.

The Canterville Ghost

Magpie Theatre Company present The Canterville Ghost on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th of December

One of Oscar Wilde’s most loved stories adapted for stage, The Canterville Ghost tells the story of a modern American family moving to an old English aristocratic mansion, which is haunted by the tortured spirit of Sir Simon de Canterville. The ghost dates back to the 1500s, knew Shakespeare personally and was even a favourite of Elizabeth I, but after murdering his wife he was doomed to wander the earth for all of eternity. When the American family move into Canterville Manor, Sir Simon embarks on an ill fated attempt to haunt them, but finds their modern sensibilities immune to his tried and tested methods of terror. The Canterville Ghost is part slapstick comedy, part historical/modernity clash and part poignant redemption story – it’s suitable for all the family.
