Encore Theatre presents Agatha Christie’s “The Unexpected Guest”, directed by Barbara Hartman.
Opening July 11 and running weekends through July 26. Friday and Saturday shows 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.
Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house, only to find himself stumbling on to the scene of a murder. When the dead man’s wife confesses to the crime, the stranger agrees to provide her with an alibi. But who is he really protecting?
A thriller, as well as a puzzler, the woman is dazed and her confession is unconvincing. The unexpected guest decides to help her and blame the murder on an intruder. Later, the police discover clues that point to a man who died two years previously and a pandora’s box of love and hate, suspicion and intrigue is opened in the night air.
