by Agatha Christie
Director: David Hall
Murder mysteries begin with a murder, but really, the murder is the end of the tale. The real story begins long before the murder, years sometimes. All the causes and events that bring the people concerned to a certain place, on a certain day, at a certain time. All sorts of people converging towards a given spot and hour – all going towards zero. This is the theme of Agatha Christie’s Towards Zero. Family, friends and acquaintances gather at the home of Lady Tressilian. In Act One, we meet the characters and learn of their jealousies, rivalries – and for some – bitter hatred for one another. It weaves an ominous path to someone’s demise. But whose? With so many motives, it’s hard to say. Act Two concludes with a clever and twisted ending that only Agatha Christie could create.
David Hall brings his love of mysteries to the director’s role of this Christie classic. Other AP shows he’s directed include Out of Order, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. He’s performed in, and directed, many theatre productions throughout WNY. Directing credits include The Long Weekend (TANYS Excellence in Directing Award), The Odd Couple, Ten Little Indians, Dark of the Moon (TANYS Excellence in Directing Award), Grease, and Over the Tavern.
