Banbury’s leading local theatre company present Spider’s Web by Agatha Christie.
Clarissa, second wife of diplomat Henry Hailsham-Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for the bored diplomatic circle. When a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama harder to cope with. Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry’s first marriage.
Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Clarissa’s fast talking places her in some hair-raising experiences as she comes to learn the facts are more terrifying than fiction!
A conscious parody of the detective thriller, Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. Tension and laughter come equally in this intricate plot of murder, police, drug addicts, invisible ink, hidden doorways & secret drawers.
