Agatha Christie's Spider's Web
A unique opportunity to watch this classic Agatha Christie in the atmospheric setting of Wymering Manor's Great Hall!
Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham-Brown, is more than adept at spinning tales of adventure for the entertainment of their bored diplomatic circle, but all the imagination in the world cannot prepare Clarissa for the moment she stumbles across a body in the drawing-room.
When a mysterious phone-call brings the determined Inspector Lord to the house, Clarissa soon realises he is convinced that one of them is the killer and finds her talent for storytelling put to the test as she fights to keep her friends and family from suspicion.
As Inspector Lord questions the household, it is clear Clarissa is not the only one avoiding the truth. With concealed identities, secret messages, and mixed motives, everybody is under suspicion - but as the web of deceit grows, will the truth be found among the lies in time to stop the murderer striking again?
One of Agatha Christie’s original works written especially for the stage, Spider’s Web is an enthralling theatrical experience, complete with intringue, lies, murder and mystery!
