The Palace Theatre Waterbury WAMS presents Appointment with Death

11/03/2017 to 11/06/2017

100 E. Main St, Waterbury, CT Phone: 203-346-2000.

An assorted group of travelers find themselves thrown together on an expedition to the rose red city of Petra. At the center of the group are Mrs. Boynton and her four stepchildren who never leave her side. This apparent devotion however is actually a facade for something far more sinister. Sarah King, a young English doctor, and her colleague, the eminent psychologist, Dr. Theodore Gerard, find themselves embroiled in a battle to free the children from the sadistic grasp of a tyrannical woman. This chilling play offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where Christie explores the realms of the sadistic mind and the devastating effects of long term psychological abuse. The play was adapted by Agatha Christie from her story, Appointment with Death, which was published in 1938.
