Black Sheep Theatre Presents
Agatha Christie's The Unexpected Guest
Directed by Diane Mashia
Presented in September and October, 2011
Plot synopsis: When Michael Starkwedder drives into a ditch in thick fog on a country road, he walks to the nearest house for help - only to find a woman standing over the body of her dead husband with a gun in her hand. It looks like an open and shut murder case, but it soon becomes clear that the dead man's wife may be covering up for someone - and there are a whole host of people in the house with both motive and opportunity to commit the murder.
As the suspense unfolds we discover that perhaps no one – not even the unexpected guest – is telling the complete truth. Murder, blackmail, insanity, conspiracy, love … The Unexpected Guest delivers all of these in the true style of the incomparable Dame Agatha.
