WORDSLEY Amateur Dramatic Society are returning to the stage this week with a play adapted by Agatha Christie, from one of her lesser known Poirot novels.

Appointment with Death, directed by experienced amateur director and performer Andrew Rock, will be staged at The Crestwood School Kingswinford, from Thursday November 18 to Saturday November 20.

The original story was rewritten for the stage as the country emerged from the Second World War, and Christie gave it a new twist at the end – a new criminal does the deed – so anyone who had read the book before the war had a surprise waiting for them in this new post-war version.

The award-winning theatre group, known as WADS, are using the play to relaunch themselves after the pandemic and are looking to find an audience willing to return to the theatre with a comedy/mystery to cheer them up after 18-months of Covid gloom.

Tickets are available by calling 01384 270228, or on the door at Crestwood School. The show starts at 7.30pm each night.
