An Audience With Lucy Worsley on Agatha Christie

Spend an evening with the Queen of History, Lucy Worsley, as she delves into the fascinating life of the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie.

For this live illustrated talk, Lucy will present one of the most elusive and enigmatic figures of the Twentieth Century. Why did Agatha Christie spend her career pretending that she was ‘just’ an ordinary housewife, when she clearly wasn’t? Agatha went surfing in Hawaii, she loved fast cars, and she was intrigued by the new science of psychology, which helped her through devastating mental illness. So why – despite all the evidence to the contrary – did she present herself as a retiring Edwardian lady of leisure?

Sharing her research based on the writer’s personal letters and papers, Lucy uncovers the real Agatha Christie – the story of a person who, despite the obstacles of class and gender, became an astonishingly successful working woman.

This promises to be an entertaining and enlightening evening in the Cornwall Playhouse, emphasising not just Agatha’s unique gifts as a storyteller but her revolutionary qualities as a determined, successful, and thoroughly modern woman.

Lucy is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces and a hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker. Her recent TV series include Blitz Spirit with Lucy Worsley (BBC One) and Lucy Worsley Investigates (BBC Two).  Lucy has an OBE for services to history, and her series Suffragettes with Lucy Worsley won the BAFTA.
