The second show of Richardson Theatre Centre’s 25th season is Agatha Christie’s murder mystery, The Unexpected Guest. A thriller as well as a puzzler set in a foggy estate, this mystery opens as a stranger walks into a house to find a man murdered and his wife standing over him with a gun. But the woman is dazed and her confession unconvincing. The unexpected guest decides to help her and blame the murder on an intruder. Later, the police discover clues that point to a man who died two years previously and a Pandora's box of love and hate, suspicion and intrigue is opened to the night air.
Agatha Christie is the most widely-published author of all time with her works outsold only by Shakespeare and the Bible. She is regarded by generations of fans as the greatest mystery writer ever, and her novels are read and cherished the world over.
