Murder in the Studio

Three Radio Plays by Agatha Christie by Kind Permission of Samuel French

The Workington Playgoers are the first British amateur dramatic society to be granted a licence to perform this classic collection of three spine-tingling radio plays by Agatha Christie, including Yellow Iris, which features everyone’s favourite detective, the inimitable Hercule Poirot. The other two plays are Personal Call and Butter in a Lordly Dish.

Come and relive the 1950s heyday of BBC broadcasting, with this script-in-hand performance of three intriguing radio plays that will keep you guessing till the very end.

‘Radio owes much to Agatha Christie. For more than 60 years, her whodunnits have been shaped into afternoon plays, classic serials and Saturday-night dramas that defend the moral order, stimulate the grey cells.’ SundayTimes
