Spider's Web

Agatha Christie

When she manages to rent Copplestone Court, a big house in the country, for just four guineas a month when the asking-price is eighteen guineas, Clarissa Hailsham-Brown thinks she's bagged a bargain.

Decamping to the country with her diplomat husband, Henry, and her stepson, Pip, she invites three guests to stay. And who could resist a break in the country?

However, this is Agatha Christie at her fiendish best and, before long, Clarissa, her family, friends and staff are caught in a terrifying storm of secret passages, mysterious telephone calls, drug-dealers and murder!

HumDrum's fifth visit to the works of Agatha Christie, Spider's Web, written especially for the stage in 1953.
