In these days of rampant big city, blood-and-guts, profanity-ridden gun-and-sex stories, a good old-fashion country house murder mystery by an author who put character, plot and intrigue above all else might just be a cathartic and entertaining diversion. Enter Agatha Christies 1951 play, The Hollow, a witty and emotionally enticing tale filled with love triangles, tarot cards and a philandering doctors body in a pool. Did the sculptor or the actress put him there? Or was it someone else entirely? Only Hercule Poirot knows the truth! Dont you want to know, too?
