Grenoside Players' production of murder mystery Apointment with Death

Grenoside and Birley Carr Players take a journey into the darker side of humanity as they present Agatha Christie’s classic story of family lies and secrets, Appointment With Death.

A family of wealthy American 1920s tourists, presided over by a tyrannical and cruel stepmother, head from Jerusalem into the Jordanian desert in the company of a group of curious fellow travellers.

Several of the strange party appear to have brought their emotional baggage along for the trip.

As they embark on their journey of archaeological discovery, domestic secrets are exposed, a battle of wills develops an unstoppable force and tensions reach boiling point as one member of the party makes an appointment with death.
