Just after mid-night, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express dead in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of year, but by morning, there is one passenger fewer.
An American business tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on the detective Hercule Poirot to discover the murderer before they strike again.
A timeless classic that explores the nature of imperfect justice, this entertaining and compelling production will keep you guessing until the very end!
The fast-moving, powerful theatrical locomotive Murder on the Orient Express will get you to a better place and slay you merrily enroute.
A love letter to the original material, with a swift moving script adaptation by Ken Ludwig... Everything you could want – broadly drawn characters, exotic settings, and a spectacular murder with no shortage of suspects
Agatha Christie is not the bestselling novelist in history for nothing, and Ken Ludwig’s adaptation strikes the perfect balance of the cerebral and the comic. Get on board – it’s a great ride
