'Appointment with Death' comes to Averitt Center
Placeholder Image
    The Averitt STARS Community Theater brings one of Agatha Christie’s most famous murder mysteries, “Appointment with Death,” to the stage of the Emma Kelly Theater beginning tonight.
    “Appointment with Death” is directed by Chris Rushing, who directed last year’s production of “Waiting for Godot” at the Emma Kelly Theater.  
    "Appointment with Death" was first published in the United Kingdom on May 2, 1938, and in the US later in the same year. The famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is featured in this work of Christie.
    While holidaying in Jerusalem, Poirot overhears Raymond Boynton telling his sister that their mother should die. Mrs. Boynton is a sadistic tyrant, constantly picking on the younger members of the family creating enemies inside and outside the family.
    When Mrs. Boynton is found dead, Poirot says he can solve the case within 24 hours. Poirot is sure he will be able to unravel the mystery by interviewing the suspects in the murder.  
    Was she murdered?  Did she die of natural causes?  Was she killed by someone outside the family?
    “It’s a great murder mystery with an unexpected twist at the end,” Rushing said.      If you would like to solve this mystery come to the Emma Kelly Theater tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. or Sunday at 2 p.m.  Call 212-2787 for more information.
