The International Agatha Christie Festival returns to the Palace Theatre, Paignton, for the UK professional premiere of The Stranger, Agatha Christie’s gripping psychological thriller, performed as a rehearsed and costumed reading.

The Stranger is an adaptation made by Agatha Christie, of her short story Philomel Cottage.

This adaptation was made before the 1936 stage play Love from a Stranger adapted by Frank Vosper .

In this fast-moving, witty and suspenseful play, two young women win a sweepstake….but they hadn’t gambled on what would happen next!

The Stranger is at the Palace Theatre, Paignton, at 7.30pm on September 17. For tickets, call 01803 665800, email or log on to
