Christie murder mystery in Bryson City

Written by 

A stage production of Agatha Christie’s “Go Back For Murder” will be held at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 20-21, 27-28 and 30, and at 3 p.m. Oct. 22 and 29 at the Smoky Mountain Community Theatre in Bryson City.

After receiving a letter from beyond the grave, Carla Crale believes her mother, who died in prison, was wrongly convicted of her father’s murder. In a passionate attempt to clear her name, she persuades those present on the day of her father’s death to return to the scene of the crime and “go back” 15 years to recount their version of events.

An unusual take on the traditional murder mystery, the action of the play slips seamlessly from past to present, examining the danger of relying on personal testimony warped by time, prejudice and perception. By studying each suspect’s testimony, and the various inconsistencies between them, the drama arrives at a disturbing and terrible truth.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for students ages 6 to 18. Under age 6 is free. The box office opens one-hour prior to show time.
