FOR a riveting crime drama, look no further than Agatha Christie’s Verdict from Monday June 6, at the Milton Keynes Theatre.
Following huge success, the Agatha Christie Company – now in its sixth outstanding year – will present a superb cast in their latest production.
Robert Duncan (Drop the Dead Donkey), Peter Byrne (Dixon of Dock Green), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom in the hugely successful Harry Potter films), Elizabeth Power (EastEnders) and 60s pop idol Mark Wynter will take to the stage in this intriguing play.
The brilliant Professor Hendryk leads a content and morally upstanding life, but his neat and tidy world is turned upside-down when the prospect of life-saving treatment for his invalid wife persuades him to take on a new private pupil against his better judgement.
The spoilt, conniving Helen leaves Hendryk feeling out of his depth away from the safe haven of his university faculty.
As a young, rich minx of a student, Helen will stop at nothing to get her own way.
With murderous intentions afoot, it only remains to be seen what verdict will be delivered, and if justice will prevail.
Agatha Christie is the ‘Queen of Crime’ and this adaptation of her play will keep the suspense buzzing until the curtain falls.
