Greenwich Library presents Agatha Christie Is Missing, a one-woman murder mystery show

Broadway and television actress and writer Prudence Wright Holmes will perform her interactive one-woman murder mystery, Agatha Christie is Missing on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. in the Library Meeting Room.

In 1926, famed mystery writer Agatha Christie staged her own disappearance after she learned her husband wanted a divorce. Missing for 11 days, she sparked a nationwide search. Holmes interprets this event in her exuberant play.

Taking on the role of ace detective Miss Clarissa Marbles, Holmes interrogates the audience and enlists their help as she tries to get to the bottom of the real-life disappearance of Agatha Christie.

Gunshots ring out, screams are heard in the night and a rollicking good time will be had by all at this fun-filled show at Greenwich Library. Agatha Christie is Missing has been voted one of the top 10 shows in the Secret Theatre Solo Festival 2015.

In addition to having written and performed three other solo shows, Holmes is an acting tour de force, appearing in featured roles in the films Sister Act I and II, Kingpin, and In Dreams, and in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

On Broadway she appeared in Happy End with Meryl Streep, Lettice and Lovage with Maggie Smith, and in Inherit the Wind with George C. Scott. Off-Broadway she was in the original cast of Godspell which she helped to create, and most recently in the Tony Award-winning musical The Light in the Piazza. Visit

No tickets are necessary; however, seating in the Meeting Room is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.

This program is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and contributions by generous donors. For more information contact Alice Bonvenuto, Reference Librarian, at [email protected], or call (203) 622-7919 or visit
