Appointment with Death

 

by Agatha Christie


Directed by Andy Kabanoff

An assorted group of travellers find themselves thrown together on an expedition to the rose-red city of Petra. At the centre of the group are Mrs Boynton and her three step-children who never leave her side. This apparent devotion however is actually a facade for something far more sinister. Sarah King, a young English doctor, and her colleague, the eminent psychologist, Dr Theodore Gerard, find themselves embroiled in a battle to free the children from the sadistic grasp of a tyrannical woman. This chilling play offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where Christie explores the realms of the sadistic mind and the devastating effects of long-term psychological abuse.
