Drama from the pen of the ‘Empress of Crime’ Agatha Christie is once again gracing the stage at Norwich Theatre Royal this week.
Go Back For Murder, based on her 1942 novel Five Little Pigs, is presented by The Official Agatha Christie Company, who were last in town with Murder on the Nile.
The impressive cast includes Sophie Ward, Liza Goddard, Lysette Anthony, Ben Nealon and Robert Duncan, who all produced polished performances.
The first half was slightly pedestrian as the back story was established, with Sophie Ward as Carla Le Marchant determined to clear her mother’s name 20 years after she was convicted of murdering Carla’s artist father - and there are five other potential suspects to choose from.
In the second half, the story goes back 20 years to the crime scene and the pace picks up considerably with some dramatic staging and quick-fire action - an entertaining production which keeps you guessing right up to the end.
Go Back For Murder runs until Saturday, September 7. Call 01603 630000 or see www.theatreroyalnorwich.co.uk for tickets.
