Those expecting the type of cosy, murder-with-a-cup-of-tea mystery so beloved of Christie fans are likely to be surprised by Love From A Stranger - though probably not disappointed. This dark, sinister play, redolent of sex and barely controlled violence, is as about as far from picturesque St Mary Mead as you can get; however, the cut glass diction, wittily dry social observation and Machiavellian twists make it clear that nobody but the lady herself could have been behind it.

Pip (Seán Aydon) wasn’t the first person to aspire to move from their current station in life to something more comfortable, more amenable and more pleasurable. He wasn’t the last, either: except where the intention is to cause harm, there’s nothing wrong with ambition.

Set in the 1970s at the Spencer’s house the play tells the story of Betty's (Sarah Earnshaw) attempts to tell husband Frank (Joe Pasquale) that a baby is on the way. The play’s five strong cast are excellent. Joe … [Read more...]
