Classic whodunnit, ‘The Hollow’ from the Queen of Crime at the Peoples Theatre

The Hollow
The Hollow at the Peoples Theatre in January

All is going well as Sir Henry Angkatell gathers family and friends for a long weekend at The Hollow, his grand rural estate. Then a body is found in the garden room. This is the latest play at the Peoples Theatre. Heaton.

The stage is set for a detective tale full of intrigue, jealousy and deception. Everyone from the Servants Hall up to the Drawing Room is under suspicion, with enough red herrings to keep you guessing until the very end!

Can tough-talking Inspector Colquhoun of Scotland Yard solve the crime before it’s too late?

The Hollow was adapted for the stage by Agatha Christie herself from her novel of the same name, and it premiered in London’s West End in 1951. Its success led to Christie adapting another of her stories into ‘The Mousetrap’ which opened in 1952 and continues to this day!

The People’s are no strangers to Christie mysteries, and have staged many of her classics including ‘Murder on the Nile’, ‘The Unexpected Guest’ and ‘Black Coffee’.

The Hollow  promises to be just as much fun and is just the thing to warm you up this January!

The Hollow  runs from Tuesday 18 to Saturday 22 January, and includes a socially-distanced performance on the Tuesday. All details are on the website
