“Very few of us are what we seem” - Agatha Christie
Seductive, sensational and chic, this stunning presentation celebrates the life and times of the Queen of Crime...with the added twist of a mystery to solve.
Characters from Christie's era are brought to life through dramatic readings and dazzling Deco fashions from the 20s & 30s - dainty day dresses, beaded 'flapper' frocks and sweeping evening gowns.
Discover just why Mrs Christie's life was as interesting as any novel, from her work in the world of archaeology to the drama of her eleven-day disappearance.
Agatha Christie was born into a world of Edwardian elegance but after her experiences during World War One she embraced the streamlined modernity of life, finding fame as a prolific writer and creator of two enduringly popular sleuths, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.
