Agatha Christie's tour-de-force thriller set on a foggy estate in Wales features a dizzying array of twists and turns. More…
On a dark and foggy evening, a lost stranger seeks refuge in a nearby country
estate only to discover that he has stumbled onto the scene of a murder.
When the dead man’s wife confesses to the crime, the sympathetic stranger
agrees to provide her with an alibi. But who is this Unexpected Guest really protecting?
"A detailed plan is contrived in an attempt to take the onus off Laura, who Michael admires and aspires to help. We’re not quite sure why he’s so quick to defend her, unless his seeming lust ultimately gets the better of him, but the plot jumps off from there. The long and detailed set-up at times grows wearisome in Act I, but in Act II, you are riveted to your seat attempting to figure out the 'who done it...What an inspired production of a classic Christie caper."

"Ms. Christie’s whodunit doesn’t aim very high, especially where the title character is concerned. Emerging from the fog shortly after the murder, he is a conveniently fresh audience for old household secrets. Victoria Rauch-Lichterman’s production, at the Clurman Theater at Theater Row, is a patchy affair, unable to sustain suspense or tone." Full Review
