Sunit Tandon as Hercule Poirot

To celebrate the release of Agatha Christie’s latest book – Mystery of three quarters by Sophie Hannah – and to commemorate her birthday (15th Sept), HarperCollins India invites you to a first-of-its-kind dramatized reading-cum-play for an Agatha Christie novel, at the Akshara Theatre (New Delhi). Directed by Jalabala Vaidya, with Sunit Tandon as Hercule Poirot, this one is a must watch!

Agatha Christie’s work has never gone out of style, nor out of print, in the four decades since her death — to the tune of more than 2 billion copies sold. But Christie’s flame burns extra bright in the present, thanks to new film adaptations (“Murder on the Orient Express”), authorized sequels (“The Monogram Murders” and “Closed Casket,” by Sophie Hannah) and homages (“Magpie Murders,” by Anthony Horowitz).

The show is scheduled for 16th Sept 2018, 6 pm onwards.

About the Akshara Theatre

THE AKSHARA THEATRE was founded in 1972 by Gopal Sharman: playwright, poet, musician, theatre and television director; and his actress wife Jalabala Vaidya. It is an exquisite arts complex set in just under one acre of land in the heart of New Delhi. It has four performance spaces for live performance equipped with the best lighting and sound equipment, a library, shooting and editing studios for television with the latest digital equipment, sound studios, workshops for set design, metal work and stone sculpture, as well as a studio for graphics design with computerized desktop publishing, and classrooms where the performing arts are taught to children and young people.


The Akshara’s best-known theatrical production, Gopal Sharman’s contemporary dramatic version of The Ramayana, was commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company of Great Britain. Enacted by Jalabala Vaidya in a one woman English language stage version, based on the traditional Indian ‘Katha’ or storytelling style, The Ramayana has been performed more than 2000 times to rave reviews all over the world – including on Broadway in New York; at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC; at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre, one of Britain’s National Theatres, in London; at the National Theatres of Canada and Finland; and at numerous other prestigious venues, like the United Nations Headquarters in New York, where it received a standing ovation.  Other popular Akshara theatre productions include Full Circle, performed in London, Europe and India, the Let’s Laugh… series of political satires, Karma, India Alive, the Bhagavad Gita, a season of Tagore’s Gitanjali and The Kabuliwala and Gandhi’s Gita, a play based on Mahatma Gandhi’s translation of the Gita –written by Gopal Sharman.
