"The characters are given funny lines but, in delivering those lines or performing sight gags, they have to be timed perfectly or it all falls flat. Then there's the other side of the play, dealing with murders and murderers, and we have to make it all work together."
"June and I were originally looking for a comedy play to direct at the Old Mill Theatre," Donna said. "But when we came across this Agatha Christie comedy-thriller, it was too good to resist. It has the tension of a whodunit alongside some humorous characters."
"Giving her some depth is the main challenge, given the play is a murder-mystery and Clarissa is written as a comical character. There needs to be an element of belief the murder really did take place and, to evoke that, it becomes a serious matter. The play touches on serious topics and Clarissa needs to adopt a change in her demeanour to reference them appropriately."
"I have never done an Agatha Christie play before," Jennifer said. "Having done some research, I realised this was her second most popular play after The Mousetrap, so I wanted to audition. The Old Mill Theatre is also a great venue."
