Not only did Agatha Christie write fascinating books, stage plays and poetry, but she also successfully tried her hand at radio plays. Her first radio play, Yellow Iris, was an adaptation of the short story under the same name that appeared in The Regatta Mystery. To commemorate the 80 th birthday of Queen Mary in 1947, Christie wrote a radio play titled Three Blind Mice. Most of Agatha Christie’s novels have also been adapted into audiobooks.
