"Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive."

Written for Margaret Lockwood by Christie herself this is generally regarded as one of Christies' strongest plays.

Clarissa, the young wife of a foreign office diplomat, delights in spinning tales of adventure to their bored circle of friends. But her amusing games become deadly serious when she discovers the body of a stranger in her own drawing room.

Desperate to dispose of it before her husband arrives with a very important person, she quickly enlists the help of her guests when a police inspector knocks on the front door.

On Saturday the 6th September the Genesian Theatre will donate 50% of all Box Office takings to charity. Please see our Charity page for the list of charities the theatre has chosen to support this season. We encourage you to come along in support of these causes.
