"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
