    Calling all mystery lovers!  In 1926, famed British mystery writer Agatha Christie staged her own disappearance after learning her husband wanted a divorce.  Missing for eleven days, she sparked a nationwide search.  Join actress and writer Prudence Wright for her interpretation of this event in her one-woman, interactive play.  Everyone is a suspect!  Gunshots will ring out, screams will be heard and a good time will be had by all!  Suitable for adults and teens.

    *This program is made possible by a generous gift from Glenn P. and Susan D. Dickes to the AWPL Foundation.
