Agatha Christie


Sheila Holden



For any amateur society to be able to put on a play with 8 men in it is an achievement indeed and our players are to be congratulated on their casting resources. The play has an improbable plot even for Agatha Christie but our players handled it well. It is perhaps unfair to single out any one or two players for special mention but Roy Venables handled the part of Sir Lawrence Wargrave very well indeed, particularly at the end. In a play which has little genuine humour in it, I very much liked the timing of David Golder's "Breakfast is served", following on a slightly fanatical Old Testament reading ending something like "They have fallen into the pit they have digged for others". I had a delightful feeling that his next words might be, "Shall I serve the gentlemen in the pit ?" ! Margaret Newton and Graham McCubbin did their best with a very small romantic interest and the cast as a whole showed a very good sense of teamwork. It is pleasant to watch a performance where everyone works together. Carol McCubbin deserves a word of praise for her performance. She took over at short notice from Kay Webb, who was indisposed. Other parts were well played by Simon Eve, John Gout, Michael Newton, Chris Spencer, Geoffrey Start and Joan Wood.
