REVIEWS

"As good a stage whodunit as we have had for some time" ~ London Observer

"Agatha Christie has staged, against her smartest, most hyperemotional background so far, the shooting of a philandering doctor” ~ Maurice Richardson, The Observer

“The Hollow is a ''who's going to get it'' that quickly turns into a ''whodunnit.' A genuine crowd pleaser and a worthwhile evening of entertainment” ~ Leah D. Frank, The New York Times

“To the end her listeners stay rapt... The main interest of the play, as a piece of writing, is in the mystery; but Mrs. Christie writes quick, speakable dialogue and, gleefully, her cast keeps us guessing until the dying minutes of the third act” ~ JC Trewin, The Times
