Why did Agatha Christie disappear? Play detective at Chelmsford Civic Theatre April 18
PUBLISHED: 10:02 03 April 2019
A true mystery about the life of crime writer Agatha Christie is at Chelmsford Civic Theatre on April 18.
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, when she disappeared.
Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and she was missing, presumed dead.
Then, 11 days later, she was 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.
Was this a publicity stunt? Or was there a personel secret involved in this disappearance which was to affect her for the rest of her life?
Actor Liz Grand (her previous one-woman show was The Second Best Bed) presents Where Is Mrs Christie? at Chelmsford Civic Theatre on April 18.
7.30pm, Cramphorn Studio. Recommended age: 12 yrs+. Tickets, £14 from 01245 606505 or chelmsford.gov.uk/theatres.
