Verdict

by: Agatha Christie

by: Agatha Christie

Overview

Karl Hendryk is a brilliant professor who, with his wife and her cousin, has fled persecution in his homeland and finds himself ensconced in London. The play concerns itself with the relationships the professor has with the women in his life. His wife, Anya, who is suffering from a progressively debilitating disease, her cousin and carer, Lisa, and Helen Rollander, a spoiled student who takes up private lessons with the professor.  

Not a murder mystery or a whodunnit but a profound and thoughtful piece that deals with the human experience.  Delving deeply into the psychology of relationships and moral philosophy, this is the story of a misguided idealist who loves so intensely it becomes ultimately destructive and unattainable.
