Where is Mrs. Christie?
Did she suffer from amnesia? Was it a publicity stunt? Or was there a darker secret involved?
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 biggest and most extensive police hunts in history.
Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for eleven 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.
Produced by On A Role, Liz Grand presents her stunning new one-woman show Where Is Mrs Christie? The Mystery of Agatha Christie’s Eleven Lost Days.
**** Liz Grand’s performance in the title role is compelling. So persuasive is she that we the audience become co-conspirators… a master-class in nuanced delivery and dramatic timing, deliberately tantalising, directed unfussily and designed for spot-on period fidelity. – The Stage
