I have never seen the play, I have read Three Blind Mice. It was actually the first Christie I ever read. I have a question about one of the characters: is Christopher Wren meant to be gay? Christopher is my favorite character in Three Blind Mice, and it always seemed to me that he was gay, even though Christie never said so (never said so about Mr Pye either). Especially in Christopher's scene with Molly, I clearly felt he was gay, and that Molly knew it; I was so exasperated at Giles' jealousy, wanted to scream at him, 'Can't you see he is not a threat?!' Also Chris did seem to appreciate handsome police officers very much. Any thoughts?
I went and saw the play last year, it was highly enjoyable. Interestingly three people who are in my social circles have seen it and have said some very interesting facts when they went to see the production:
1. My dentist had noted that throughout the play there is something inconsistent with it. What this is he cannot remember has someone pointed it out to him. (If anyone else may have spotted this inconsistent please say)
2.The person who came along with me to watch The Mousetrap (as we were two in number) had guessed the murderer(s) simply because person playing the part curled his/her hair which is a common sign to show guilt.
3.My associate told me that when she saw the play a women who was sitting near her had a stroke, then during intermission which was only a minute or two away, the paramedics arrived. It was then mentioned in the local paper, The Evening Post, that the women past away that night.
How very sad
I agree with glalonzo0408 has been to London yet and if so did she and her Husband see the show as she hoped. I would like to hear what they thought.I go in September Frank......I will let you know what I think....
The play is genius! To be able to have a whole play situated in just one room is amazing! I was taken away with how amazing the plot was and enjoyed the whole play from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this to everyone as it show Christie's play writing skills of and proves she is an extremely talented writer. Does anyone know whethr it is true that they change who commited the crime each time?
