Karl Hendryk, a brilliant professor who, with his wife and her cousin, have fled persecution in their homeland to find themselves ensconced in London. The play concerns itself with the relationships the professor has with the women in his life. His wife, Anya, who is suffering from a progressively debilitating disease, her cousin and carer, Lisa, and Helen Rollander, a spoiled student who takes up private lessons with the professor.
Dame Agatha described the play as follows ~
“It was not a detective story or a thriller. It was a play that concerned murder, but its real point was that an idealist is always dangerous; a possible destroyer of those who love him – and poses the question of how far you can sacrifice, those you love, for what you believe in.”
One of only a few Christie plays written directly for the stage and not adapted from an underlying story, Verdict opened in the West End at the Strand Theatre in May 1958.
“It satisfied me completely. I still think it is the best play I have written, with the exception of Witness for the Prosecution.” ~ Agatha Christie
