THEATREFEST 2016

Murder used to be so ... genteel, back when it was the province of dowager sleuths, assassins with a diverting flair for cryptology, and fog-bound detectives, so easily led astray. This month, N.C. State's annual Theatrefest serves Agatha Christie three ways, with three shows in rotating repertory. If you want classic Christie, there's the fatal love triangle of The Hollow. If you want a satirical knockoff, there's Something's Afoot, a musical comedy. The bravest can opt for Tea with Agatha, a tea or dinner event ($50–$75) in which JoAnne Dickinson portrays Christie in a behind-the-scenes special effects tour with artistic director John McIlwee. Just remember, cyanide tastes like almonds. Bon appétit. —Byron Woods
