A new adaptation of the murderous mystery, which inspired three classic movies starring the likes of Bob Hope, Honor Blackman and Olivia Hussey. Twenty years after the death of Mr. West, his descendants gather at a remote mansion to learn who will inherit his vast wealth and the hidden family jewels. When the heir is revealed, the heritage hunters turn into prey and a chain of macabre events is set in motion; walls crack open, shadows loom and dark secrets are revealed. Will the heirs dare to face the haunting presence toying with them? When the cat prowls, the flock takes fright... Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, The Classic Thriller Company presents their latest adaptation of this mysterious and turbulent classic. Starring Britt Ekland (The Man with the Golden Gun, The Wicker Man), Dakota Blue Richards (Endeavour, Skins, Beecham House), Mark Jordon (Emmerdale, Casualty), Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier) and Marti Webb (Blood Brothers, La Cage Aux Folles).
