Who is playing the game of murder? With all the twists and turns you'd expect from an Agatha Christie detective thriller, Leslie Darbon's adaptation of 'Cards On The Table' offers a fast-paced, suspenseful, warm and entertaining night of theatre.
The mysterious and wealthy Shaitana gathers together an array of formidable characters with shady pasts: the charming doctor, the courageous Major, the millionairess and the naive debutant. He then invites Mrs. Ariadne Oliver, a famous crime writer and her new ally, Superintendent Battle to join the dinner party. However, an innocent game of Bridge soon turns to murder and the two sleuths race against time to solve the 'who dunnit' before the murderer strikes again.
Find out who is bluffing, who holds the trump card and who has the ace of spades!
