Welcome to open auditions for our spring production of ‘Go back For Murder’ by Agatha Christie at 13:00 on Sunday 9 October at the Finnish-British Society, Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9, 00120 Helsinki.
What is more exciting than an Agatha Christie play based on family secrets, intrigue, suspense, romance, seduction, and murder?
Carla Crale returns to the UK from Canada carrying a disturbing secret. Her mother, Caroline Crale, died in prison serving a life sentence for poisoning her husband, Amyas Crale, Carla’s father. On receiving a letter in which Caroline pleads her innocence of the crime, Carla is determined to clear her mother’s name. With the help of a young lawyer, Justin Fogg, she assembles the people involved in the tragic drama, and together with Justin, uncovers the truth.
