The People's Theatre are set to start the New Year with the Queen of Crime Agatha Christie! Their January whodunnits always prove popular, and last year’s The Unexpected Guest delighted audiences with its gripping twists and turns.
In GO BACK FOR MURDER, Carla le Merchant is determined to find out the truth about who murdered her father. It’ll keep you guessing until the end, and promises to be lots of fun along the way!
So who is in the frame for the murder of Amyas Crale? Only six people were present when he was poisoned. It must have been one of them.
Caroline Crale? The wife he cheated on, who was found guilty of poisoning him. However, in a letter from her prison deathbed she told her daughter Carla that she was innocent of the crime. Was she telling the truth?
Meredith Blake? An old friend of the family who harboured a secret passion. He was an amateur herbalist and distilled his own poisons. Did he administer the deadly hemlock?
Philip Blake? A confirmed bachelor and best friend of Amyas. He was once briefly in love with Caroline but she rejected him in favour of Amyas. Did long-standing jealousies finally lead to revenge?
Elsa Greer? The lover of Amyas and model for his final painting. They were having a passionate relationship - did that passion boil over into murder?
Warren? The 14-year old stepsister of Caroline Crale. She was jealous of Amyas’ relationship with her sister and was being sent away to school. Is that a motive for murder in a teenager’s mind?
Miss Williams? The governess to Angela who disapproved of Amyas’ affairs. She was strongly protective of Angela and Caroline. Could that make her a killer?
