Lux Radio Theatre presents the Agatha Christie Radio Mysteries. Engaging showmanship, from well before and beyond the box. Let your imagination run wild as a group of top Melbourne theatre and screen actors recreate the pre-television days using recently rediscovered radio scripts by Agatha Christie.
Chiefly remembered for her 78 detective novels, particularly those featuring legendary fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, Agatha Christie was one of the most important writers in the development of the crime genre, earning the title the 'Queen of Crime'.
The Lux Radio Theatre actors play a wide range of roles, perform the soap commercials and do the live sound effects as actors did during live audience broadcasts generations ago. The show features Simon Russell, Lucy Gransbury, James Wright, Jenny Seedsman and Kirsty Child.
