An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell, arguably Christie’s finest comic grande dame. Dr. Cristow, the Harley Street lothario, is at the center of the trouble when, assembled in one place, we find his dull but devoted wife Gerda, his mistress and prominent sculptor Henrietta and his former lover and Hollywood film star Veronica. Also visiting are Edward and Midge whose romantic assertions are likewise thrown into the mix. As the list of romantic associations grow so does the list of potential suspects when Cristow is shot dead. Nearly everyone has a motive but only one of them did the deed. 


REVIEWS

"Agatha Christie has staged, against her smartest, most hyperemotional background so far, the shooting of a philandering doctor.” - Maurice Richardson, The Observer 

The Hollow is a ''who's going to get it'' that quickly turns into a ''whodunnit.' A genuine crowd pleaser and a worthwhile evening of entertainment.” - Leah D. Frank, The New York Times

“To the end her listeners stay rapt... The main interest of the play, as a piece of writing, is in the mystery; but Mrs. Christie writes quick, speakable dialogue and, gleefully, her cast keeps us guessing until the dying minutes of the third act.” - JC Trewin, The Times


The Hollow was by Peter Saunders at the Fortune Theatre, London, W.C.2, on June 7th, 1951.
