The Secret Adversary at Watermill Theatre
Thursday 12th February to Saturday 21st March
There are many events in Berkshire this February that are not to be missed including this performance. The Watermill Theatre in association with Eleanor Lloyd Productions are showing Agatha Christie’s The Secret Adversary. A Tommy & Tuppence Thriller. Adapted by Sarah Punshon and Johann Hari.
Agatha Christie’s gripping thriller follows the daring and dizzying adventures of Tommy & Tuppence through 1920s London.
Home from the War, flat-broke and unemployed, our twenty-something heroes embark on a daring business scheme: ‘The Young Adventurers Limited’… willing to go anywhere, willing to do anything. But their first assignment plunges them into more danger than they ever imagined and they quickly find themselves sucked into a perilous world of political intrigue, criminal conspiracy, murder and mayhem.
Launching as part of the 125th anniversary celebrations of the author’s birth, The Secret Adversary takes to the stage for the very first time in this inventive new adaptation shot through with fast-paced action, comedy, live music and a dash of romance.
