So Agnatha Christie is known as the Queen of Crime and Verdict comes to The Gaiety Theatre in Dublin from October 17 – 22nd.
Interestingly, Written and first performed in 1958, Verdict is one of Christies few original plays which is not based on a novel or short story. It premiered in the West End in May 1958, and ran for 250 performances, before later going on to open in New York and Luxembourg.

With murderous intentions afoot, it only remains to be seen what verdict will be delivered, and if justice will prevail..’
