About Murder On the Orient Express by Agatha Christie & Ken Ludwig

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for this time of year with its elegant and somewhat eccentric list of passengers. As morning dawns, however, the train is one traveler short: an American tycoon has been found stabbed to death in the bed of his private compartment. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, adroit detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case they decide to strike again.

Content Advisory: Recommended for ages 12+ due to adult themes and violence. This show contains simulated smoking, gunshots, and MURDER! (There is no official rating system for live theatre. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child's age and maturity level.)
