Picnic Theater Company Presents Agatha Christie’s “The Unexpected Guest”

Posted on: November 3rd, 2017 by Stephanie Boyle No Comments

On November 1st, 2nd and 3rd, join Picnic Theatre Company at Dumbarton House for cocktail party theatre and an evening of campy suspense with Agatha Christie’s The Unexpected Guest! Set in a foggy estate in Wales in 1958, this classic mystery begins in a dark mansion at the scene of a heinous crime.  As each quirky member of the isolated household is questioned, investigators reveal a tangled web of lies, family secrets and chilling motives. Will the killer strike again?

Enjoy cocktails, refreshments, and music on the Belle Vue Room patio at 6:30, then a one-hour one-act performance seated in the ballroom at 7:30pm. Proceeds benefit Dumbarton House’s historic preservation and Courage for Kids. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.

The Unexpected Guest is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
