THE SECRET ADVERSARY
By Agatha Christie
A New Adaptation by Sarah Punshon and Johann Hari
UK Tour 2015
Agatha Christie’s gripping thriller follows the daring and dizzying adventures of Tommy & Tuppence through 1920’s London.
★★★★ ‘Nifty, old-school and fun. It’s Agatha frisky!’
Home from the war, flat-broke and unemployed, our twenty-something heroes embark on a daring business: ‘The Young Adventurers Limited’… willing to go anywhere, willing to do anything. But their first assignment plunges them into more danger than they ever imagined and they quickly find themselves sucked into a perilous world of political intrigue, criminal conspiracy, murder and mayhem.
Launching as part of the 125th anniversary celebrations of the author’s birth, The Secret Adversary takes to the stage for the very first time in this inventive new adaptation shot through with fast-paced action, comedy, live music and a dash of romance.
★★★★ ‘Thrilling… Deliciously deft. A topping start to the Queen of Crime’s anniversary year’
