The Cornish Mystery

Image Picker for Section 0

By Agatha Christie

night, quiet town

Adapted and directed by Michael Gotch

Detective Poirot is asked to help a middle-aged woman from Cornwall who believes she is being poisoned by her husband.  She has no proof, only suspicions – and the discovery of a half empty bottle of weed killer!

Poirot visits her home to investigate and discovers that he is too late – she is already dead. But is her husband really guilty of the poisoning?  You will be on the edge of your seat as the genius Poirot discovers the truth within this web of lies.  

The REP’s audio presentation of Agatha Christie’s The Cornish Mystery, adapted and directed by REP company member Michael Gotch, will engage and thrill you as Hercule Poirot once again solves the mystery and expertly reveals the identity of the murderer.

The Cornish Mystery will stream online for FREE until May 21st!
