In "Towards Zero," family, friends and acquaintances gather at the home of Lady Tressilian. In Act One, we meet the characters and learn of their jealousies, rivalries - and for some- bitter hatred for one another. It weaves an ominous path to someone's demise. But whose? With so many motives, it's hard to say. Act Two concludes with a clever and twisted ending that only Agatha Christie could create.
