Collingtonians at the Greebelt Arts Center
Grant Bagley shares information about two productions involving Collingtonians.
Note that both of these plays have Collinton residents in the cast. Collington is unable to provide a bus to the Agatha Christie play. If there is sufficient interest perhaps we could arrange carpools or rent a bus for the June 26 Sunday matinee. The Eaton Woman will have a bus for the Sunday July 17 matinee. The Eaton Woman is by the same playwright as the Springfield Boys, the Abraham Lincoln play that many Collington residents attended last year.
Written by Agatha Christie, Directed by Rick Starkweather
Guest Production from Thunderous Productions
An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell. Dr. Cristow is at the center of the trouble when his mistress Henrietta, ex-mistress Veronica, and wife Gerda, simultaneously arrive at The Hollow. Also visiting are Edward (who is in love with Henrietta) and Midge (who loves Edward). Veronica ardently desires to marry Cristow and succeeds in reopening their affair but is unable to get him to divorce his wife. Veronica unwisely states that if she cannot have him, no one shall. Within five minutes Cristow is dead. Nearly everyone has a motive and most had the opportunity. Enter Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny to solve the crime.

The Eaton Woman is not well suited for people who hate gossip. But the play dispels any notion that Washington was once a kinder, gentler city. This historically based two- act dramedy is all about morals, adultery, lies, deception, women’s roles in Washington Society, the quasi downfall of the Jackson Administration, and the most beautiful woman in Washington history. Others say the most immoral and abrasive.
