Reviews

"The writing is tight and sophisticated: well-informed characters neatly framed by the absorbing narrative voice of savvy Hattie."

Roe Lane, Fringe Review

"Both homage to and dark departure from the traditional Agatha Christie murder mystery, this antipodean re-imagining of the classic tale of death at a country house turns the crime genre upside down in more ways than one. The play boasts a cast of intriguing characters, all brought to life by phenomenally talented Samantha Hill, and all bound together in a cunning and unexpected narrative that will keep you guessing to the very end."

SNAFU Theatre

"When a mysterious death sparks Arthur’s detective instincts, a series of increasingly dark events force Hattie to confront some deeply conflicting emotions about the nature of familial bonds."
