Spider’s Web

Peterborough New Theatre, August 17-21

The theatre reopens with a conscious parody of the detective thriller, in which Agatha Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour.

Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure, but when a murder takes place in her drawing room, she finds live drama rather harder to cope with.
