Civic Theatre

Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express

The Studio Theater // Mar 10 - Mar 25

A steam engine in blood-red and grey moves along tracks from left to right against a snowy background. The Civic logo appears in the top-right.

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a eight 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.
