Who Murdered the Good Doctor?


Friends, I think you know by now that Houston has a superb art scene and a belle couldn’t be happier in my new hometown! Last week, I indulged in a little mystery; I saw Agatha Christie’s The Hollow at the Alley Theatre in Houston’s famed theatre district. If you are visiting Houston or looking for Houston tourism attractions, you should definitely make like a local and visit Houston’s theatre district!

The Alley Theatre is a beautiful facility and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. The set was stunning!

The Hollow follows the story of a group of cousins and a doctor and his wife who meet at the Hollow family estate for a weekend getaway. During the play we find out about scandal, obsession and ultimately murder. Seems like we watch this on tv on the regular right? As the title implies, the good doctor is murdered and it’s up to the detectives (and you dear friend) to figure out whodunit. I have to proudly boast that I figured out who the murderer was!


Christie’s play has lots of comedic relief, along with tense moments in the play that are sure to make you say hmm. Go see it to beat the Houston heat. Go see it to support the arts. And, go see it to solve a nice little mystery. I promise you’ll enjoy yourself.

The Hollow runs until August 4th on the Hubbard Stage. Tickets start at $26 and you may buy tickets here.
