The Arlington Players (TAP) is proudly presenting the Agatha Christie play A Daughter’s a Daughter, which follows widowed Ann and her only daughter, Sarah, through their intense relationship of jealousy, sacrifice and resentment.

TAP productions like this are produced and presented completely by community volunteers (they’re your neighbors, friends and colleagues!). Actors, directors, set painters, costumers and more sacrifice their evening and weekends, time with their friends and families, for the good of their passion.

A Daughter’s A Daughter was the fifth novel published under Christie’s pseudonym Mary Westmacott. Westmacott novels deviated from the crime and murder genre Christie is best known for, and this story is no different.

The show runs weekends February 1-16 at the Thomas Jefferson Community Theater. The performance on February 8 will be ASL interpreted. Tickets at
