Another Play!

Whoo! Another play! All month I have been working on Agatha Christie’s The Unexpected Guest. I am playing Henry Angell, the shifty-eyed, male nurse attendant to the deceased. I’ve had a lot of fun with the character and I think that shines through my performance. Many people have come up to me after the show to say that I seem nothing like him in person, which I take as a compliment.

I stumbled upon the play from an acting group on Facebook, auditioned a few days later, and then got the part. I was a little nervous at first because I had literally read the script cold with no real knowledge of the characters, so the character type I went with sort of gradually changed as I learned more about who this character is.

The story is about “a lost stranger seeking refuge in a nearby house only to find a person shot dead with his wife standing over the body. The woman’s daed confession is anything but convincing, and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who dead two years ago. As past wrongs emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives. The real murderer turns out be the greatest mystery of all.”
