The queen of history takes on the queen of crime – as TV historian Lucy Worsley uncovers the real Agatha Christie.
In her illustrated talk Lucy will delve into the life of one of the most elusive and enigmatic figures of the 20th century.
An Evening With Lucy Worsley on Agatha Christie will be at York Theatre Royal on Monday 26 September.
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 did Agatha Christie spend her career pretending that she was ‘just’ an ordinary housewife – when she clearly wasn’t?
Find out in this entertaining and enlightening evening.
