The Gallery Players present APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH by Agatha Christie


The Gallery Players | Park Slope

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.

There’s nothing like a magical night under the stars listening to music. When that experience includes one of my favorite artists appearing in one of my favorite places in the world, it’s at the top of my bucket list.

It all came to be with a simple Facebook post.

50 years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon.

On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history, achieving the goal that President John F. Kennedy had set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth.
