Dunstable’s Little Theatre in High Street South is about to be turned into a crime scene, writes Geoff Cox.

And Dunstable Today readers are being invited to find out whodunnit after murder most foul is committed.

Dunstable Rep Theatre is presenting The Hollow, one of Agatha Christie’s famous plays, from March 13 to 21.

The cast is hard at work rehearsing the production and tickets are now on sale.

The Rep’s Angie Goss said: “With a stellar cast, a superb set and authentic 1950s costumes, this play is a must.”

An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell.

Dr Cristow is at the centre of the trouble when his mistress Henrietta, ex-mistress Veronica and wife Gerda simultaneously arrive at The Hollow.

Also visiting are Edward, who is in love with Henrietta, and Midge, who loves Edward.

Veronica ardently desires to marry Cristow and succeeds in reopening their affair, but is unable to get him to divorce his wife.

Veronica unwisely states that if she cannot have him, no one shall.

Within five minutes Cristow is dead. Nearly everyone has a motive and most had the opportunity. Enter Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny to solve the crime.

Angie added: “Only the cast of The Hollow know who the murderer is and they are not telling! If you want to find out who the murderer is, do not delay, book your tickets today.”
