SKIPTON Players are busy rehearsing for their upcoming production of Agatha Christie’s classic who dunnit The Hollow.

A thriller of betrayal and passion, The Hollow will run at Skipton Little Theatre from Tuesday, November 28, to Saturday, December 2.

Directed by Alan Parkinson, the story is about an unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader which explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell.

Dr Cristow, the Harley Street lothario, is at the centre of the trouble when, assembled in one place, the audience is introduced to his dull but devoted wife Gerda, his mistress and prominent sculptor Henrietta and his former lover and Hollywood film star Veronica.

Also visiting are Edward and Midge whose romantic assertions are likewise thrown into the mix. As the list of romantic associations grow so does the list of potential suspects when Cristow is shot dead.

Nearly everyone has a motive but only one of them did the deed.

All performances start at 7:30pm at the theatre on Clifford Street.

Tickets, which cost £10 for non-members and £5 for under 16s and students, can be booked by ringing 07527 141176 or online at
