GO BACK FOR MURDER by Agatha Christie


Lovers of a good murder mystery are always keen to see any play by Agatha Christie, the master of mystery, and fans of this genre will not be disappointed with the Genesian Theatre’s current production of “Go Back For Murder”.

Directed by Michael Heming, with a clever set designed by Garry Bates that makes for quick and easy scene changes, the production manages to capture the moods portrayed in the play’s variety of the settings, from a legal office to a country home.

In this brilliant edge of your seat whodunnit, we follow Carla’s quest to obtain justice for her mother who was sent to gaol after being charged and found guilty of poisoning her philandering husband.

Carla’s mother died in jail, but left her daughter a letter insisting on her innocence.

GBFM 5With the assistance of solicitor Justin Fogg, who followed the case closely, Carla makes it her mission to clear her mother’s name and aims to interrogate the five other people present when the crime was committed twenty years previously, to learn the truth.

Tamryn Liddell and David Hopkins make a wonderful team as Carla Le Marchant and Justin Fogg.

I won’t spoil the surprise, you will have to see the play to find out if Carla’s mother was as innocent as she states.

Playing until 3 October 2015, with performances on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. plus a matinee at 4.30 p.m. on Sunday.
