Agatha Christie: The Stranger
August 18 – 28, 2022
Peninsula Studio Theatre | 14600 North Bluff Road
Get ready to meet The Stranger – as Peninsula Productions presents a ‘lost’ classic by Queen of Crime Agatha Christie, lovingly revived by director/production designer Alex Browne and producer Janet Ellis.
England in the early 1930s: Enid Bradshaw (Natalie Peters, Sorry Wrong Number) is a beautiful young business woman on the brink of marriage to safe, reliable Richard Lane (Luca Herring). Then, by chance, she meets and falls for a charming stranger, Gerald (Harrison MacDonald, Other Desert Cities). Jilting Richard, she sets a course for danger – and a shocking, shattering conclusion. Tickets are available online.
