Christie classic is at Derby Theatre

The Agatha Christie Company will be performing Go Back For Murder at Derby Theatre from October 8-12, as part of their latest UK tour.

A heavyweight cast of familiar TV faces will feature Liza Goddard, Sophie Ward, Robert Duncan, Gary Mavers, Lysette Anthony and Ben Neal.

Carla La Merchant has to live with a disturbing family secret; her mother, Caroline Crale, died in prison while serving life for killing her husband. But on finding a letter in which Caroline claims that she’s innocent, Carla becomes obsessed, determined to clear her mother’s name.

Enlisting the help of Justin Fogg, the son of Caroline’s defence lawyer, Carla tracks down a number of people from her mother’s tragic past, only to uncover a shocking truth…

Suspects, secrets and suspense abound in Go Back for Murder, a classic ‘whodunnit’ packed with intrigue, murder and suspense and one of over a dozen plays from the pen of Dame Agatha Christie. Go Back for Murder was adapted by Christie in 1960 from her novel Five Little Pigs, editing out the legendary detective Poirot for the stage version.
