This is an entertaining production of the old favourite by Agatha Christie. There’s a snowed-in guest house full of eccentrics and an inevitable murder. The first half plays up the comedy, the second half concentrates more on the drama. A few details of the script beggar belief, but otherwise this is a solid version of a minor Christie mystery.

One friend who accompanied me also saw the London production last year: she thought that the Adelaide show was the funnier and more memorable of the two.

Note that this is being performed at the Dunstan Playhouse, one of my favourite Adelaide theatres. You should get a good view from pretty much any seat.
