The Carlton Players Little Theatre in Birkenhead presents an amateur production licensed by Samuel French Ltd.
Adapted by Frank Vosper from Agatha Christie's 1924 short story, this classic drama tells of Cecily Harrington who, whilst her fiancé is travelling in the Sudan, wins a big prize in a sweepstake. She decides to postpone the wedding to spend a portion of the money on a European trip.
During her travels, she meets Bruce Lovell, who sweeps the romance-craving Cecily off her feet, marries her, and takes her to his out-of-the-way cottage in the country. However, Lovell is not the charming gentleman he appears to be. Instead, he is a homicidal maniac of the most eerie, repulsive type, and is resolved to murder his new wife, just as he has murdered several other women before her.
When a series of circumstances leads Cecily to realize the ghastly fact, she finds herself caught like a rat in a trap, unsure of how she will escape.
All performances start at 7.30pm.
Tickets: £8.00 (£6.00 NUS/U16s). Book tickets here
