Verdict is a 1958 play by the award winning Agatha Christie, a British mystery writer. Unlike many of her other plays, Verdict is an original play not based on a story or novel, and it is more of a melodrama than a typical ‘whodunit.'
The play tells the story of Karl Hendryk, a brilliant professor, who, with his invalid wife and cousin, have fled persecution in their country. The cousin, whose role is caregiver to the wife and manager of the home, and the professor have suppressed feelings for each other. When a rich young student arrives for private lessons with Karl, the plot twists and thickens.
