The Hollow opens this weekend at Ilkley Playhouse

The Wharfeside Theatre at Ilkley Playhouse opens it doors this weekend for the start of the autumn programme with Agatha Christie’s thriller The Hollow.

A weekend house party at The Hollow, the home of Sir Henry Angkatell and his wife Lucy, turns into a nightmare when tragedy strikes. Among the guests are three of the Angkatell cousins: Edward, Midge and Henrietta. Edward is in love with Henrietta and Midge is in love with Edward. Also present are Dr John Cristow and his wife Gerda. Imagine Cristow’s shock when he finds not only his wife and mistress Henrietta under the same roof, but also his ex-mistress Veronica Craye. The scene is set for murder. How fortunate that there is a detective on hand to help solve the mystery. Agatha Christie believed that this was one of the best stories she had ever written.

If you are intrigued to find out why, get your tickets booked at or call the box office on 01943 609539.

The Hollow runs from the 4th to the 11th September in the Wharfeside Theatre.
