Adapted by Ken Ludwig

Directed by Sarah Sheppard Shaver

All aboard the opulent Orient Express from Istanbul to Paris! Eleven strangers on a train find themselves suddenly stranded in the snow and at the scene of a murder: an American businessman is found stabbed to death in his locked room. When everyone is a suspect, will the killer be discovered and brought to justice? As luck would have it, the renowned detective Hercule Poirot is one of the passengers on board and vows to crack the case! With an eclectic cast of characters and a story filled with action, deception, romance, and humor, Agatha Christie’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS will have audiences on the edge of their seat, eager to find out who did it and why.
