TARGET AUDIENCE

Adult

An assorted group of travellers find themselves thrown together on an expedition to the rose red city of Petra. At the centre of the group are Mrs. Boynton and her four stepchildren who never leave her side. This apparent devotion however is actually a façade for something far more sinister. Sarah King, a young English doctor, and her colleague, the eminent psychologist, Dr. Theodore Gerard, find themselves embroiled in a battle to free the children from the sadistic grasp of a tyrannical woman. This chilling play offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where Christie explores the realms of the sadistic mind and the devastating effects of long term psychological abuse.
Appointment with Death opened in the West End on March 31, 1945 at the Piccadilly Theatre. It was directed by Terence de Marney.
