Whats On

What's on in Auckland 2022

Spider's Web
By Agatha Christie
Directed by Matthew Cousins
Season: 9 - 17 Dec

When a murder occurs in Clarissa’s drawing-room she suspects her young stepdaughter Pippa. Things are not helped by the imminent arrival of husband Henry with a VIP in tow who might take a dim view of bodies in the drawing-room. However, by the time Henry gets home, the murderer has been unmasked and all is normal, so normal that Henry is utterly unable to believe Clarissa when she explains exactly why there are no refreshments ready for their honoured guest.

A Community Theatre production of ‘Spiders Web’ by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd and New Zealand Play Bureau Ltd.

James Wormold, an under-employed vacuum cleaner salesman living in 1950s Cuba, is struggling to pay for his teenage daughter's increasingly extravagant lifestyle. So when the British Secret Service asks him to become their 'Man in Havana' he can't afford to say no.

There's just one problem: he doesn't know anything!

To avoid suspicion he begins to recruit non-existent sub-agents, concocting a series of intricate fictions. He files bogus reports using Charles Lamb’s Tales from Shakespeare and dreams up military installations from vacuum-cleaner designs. But Wormold soon discovers that his stories are closer to the truth than he could have ever imagined ...

In Clive Francis' adaptation, Graham Greene's classic satirical novel becomes a wonderfully funny and fast-moving romp.
