The Gallery Players present APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH by Agatha Christie


The Gallery Players | Park Slope
Friday, December 14, 2018 to Saturday, December 29, 2018

The Gallery Players present APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH by Agatha Christie, an entertaining murder mystery that will keep you guessing until the end, opening Saturday, December 1, 2018, in Park Slope.

In this adapted version of the 1938 detective novel of the same name, Christie created an entirely new ending.  Featuring a group of travelers who find themselves thrown together on a Middle Eastern expedition, the “Queen of Crime” offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where characters’ motivations are suspect and relationships may not be what they seem. First performed at the Piccadilly Theatre in London on March 31, 1945, APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH remains fresh and exciting today.

APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH runs for 12 performances through December 16th.  Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8PM, Sundays at 3PM, with additional Saturday matinees on December 8th and 15th at 2PM.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for seniors over 65 and children under 12. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling Ovationtix at 212-352-3101.

Today was Mikaela's day to shine during a dreary day at Killington. The weather really was opposite of the excitement as she competed for her third straight Killington Cup slalom podium.

It was Federica's day. After moving from the 6th starting position to a 2nd place first run finish, Brignone tore up the course in the second run to finish .49 ahead of Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway.
