The Unexpected Guest Auditions

January 6 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Show: The Unexpected Guest
Author: Agatha Christie
Venue: Old Mill Theatre
Theatre Company: Old Mill Theatre
Show Dates: Feb 23-March 10
Director: Joan Scafe

Synopsis:
Lost in fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house… only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, police clues point to a man who died two years previously but, as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives – where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.
