    Love From A Stranger

    Written by Agatha Christie & Frank Vosper
    Directed by Rob Cording-Cook

    If you love tense, psychological thrillers, then make sure you see Love From A Stranger by Agatha Christie and Frank Vosper at the Tivoli Theatre from 20 – 22 October. Produced by Wimborne Drama Productions and adapted from one of Christie's short stories, the play is electric with suspense and a shocking twist.

    A whirlwind romance with a handsome and charming stranger sweeps Cecily Harrington off her feet and she recklessly abandons her old life to settle in the remote and blissful surroundings of a country cottage. However, her newfound love is not all that he seems.

    Love From A Stranger is directed by Rob Cording-Cook and stars Tracey Nicholls and Richard Cawte. Also in the cast are Jenny Hughes, Lindsay McGowan, Tony Feltham, Russ Guillaume, Rosie Nye and Chris Durham.

    Rob Cording-Cook says: "Our plays by Agatha Christie are always so popular – our audiences love them and we love producing them. This one is an intense and chilling psychological thriller and, as you expect from Agatha Christie, there are vividly portrayed characters, a great plot and an unexpected twist at the end."

    Tickets, which cost £16 for the evening performances (at 7.30pm) and £14 for the Saturday matinee (at 2.30pm), are on sale from the Tivoli Theatre Box Office (01202 885566) or online (booking fees may apply).
