More about this story

When a house party gathers at Gull's Point, the seaside home of Lady Tressilian, Neville Strange finds himself caught between his old wife Audrey and his new flame Kay. A nail-biting thriller, the play probes the psychology of jealousy in the shadow of a savage and brutal murder. A carefully unpeeled investigation before our eyes brings the story to a pointed ending.

The play, by Agatha Christie and Gerald Verner, premiered in the West End at the St. James's Theatre in September, 1956 produced by Peter Saunders - producer of The Mousetrap.
