Where is Mrs Christie?

Friday 5th October 2018 - Starts 7.30pm



Actor Liz Grand presents her new one-woman show.

Agatha Christie was one of the greatest thriller writers of all time and certainly the most prolific. In 1926, she was at the centre of a mystery as perplexing as any of her fiction –  a series of events which sparked one of the most extensive police hunts in history. Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for 11 days. However, she was eventually found at a luxury hotel in Harrogate. She claimed then, and for the rest of the life, that she was suffering from amnesia and remembered nothing. Neither the press nor the police believed her.

Did Agatha Christie lie, and if so why? Did she suffer from amnesia? Was it a publicity stunt? Or was there a darker secret involved in this disappearance which was to affect her for the rest of her life? The answer to all these questions will, as in all good thrillers, be revealed!
