Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express

Adapted by Ken Ludwig

Run Dates: April 21 – May 7, 2023

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.
