Miss Perry is a stage play in two acts written by Agatha Christie but which was never published or performed. The researcher John Curran discovered a plot outline in Agatha Christie's notebook 53.[1]

In 2012, Dutch collector Ralf M.M. Stultiëns announced that he had discovered and acquired the hitherto unpublished manuscript. The manuscript, some 80 pages long came from the inventory Hughes Massie & Co Ltd, Agatha Christie’s former literary agency.[2]

Some internet resources state the play was written about 1964 (no citations). This accords with the other contents in notebook 53 which cover the 1950s and 1960s.
