Agatha Christie Wouldn't Take No Catfishing

If Agatha Christie was alive today, her characters would likely fall prey to, or spend all of their time investigating, Catfish-like tales about fake profiles with murderous twists. Such is not the case in Love from a Stranger. Holding true to Christie's form, this play is based on her short story Philomel Cottage. In today’s world, a girl would never have to rely on a gardener or old news clippings to find out what her creepy new online boyfriend is up to (that’s what Facebook and Google are for), but alas, Love's protagonist, Cecily Harrington, is stuck in a typewriter era where there’s not yet an app for that. Identities are mysterious, lovers are secretive and sinister intentions fly freely in Garland Civic Theatre's production of Love From a Stranger, opening Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Patty Granville Arts Center, 300 N. Fifth Street. There will be additional performances through March 24. Tickets range $17 to $22. Call 972-205-2790, or visit
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: March 1. Continues through March 24, 2012
