The Hollow

Agatha Christie

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

62 years since it debuted in Cambridge, Agatha Christie's The Hollow is back. Follow the Angkatell family as they fight for love, revenge and money in this classic Christie murder mystery.

The Angkatell family return to the Hollow, where Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell host their cousins, Henrietta, Edward and John and his wife Gerda. But when John's old flame, the fiery Hollywood star, Veronica Craye, arrives, the only solution can be murder! Luckily Inspector Colquohoun is on the case, and he'll uncover more family secrets than just the solution to this crime...

With witty characters, shock twists and one of Christie's trademark ingenious solutions, The Hollow is the perfect excitement for a spring evening.

This production is recommended for ages 15 and above.

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
