A murder caper in two acts.
"A different Agatha Christie. The play has deserted the familiar path of the whodunnit type thriller into the realms of black comedy. The action is played for laughs rather than chills, but once the storyline has been established, there is plenty of humour and sparkle to carry it along to the usual surprise climax."The Stage
The play was originally performed in Bristol in 1971, titled Fiddler's Five. Christie revised the script, combined two characters and simplified several of the red herrings and Fiddler's Three was completed in 1972.
