MYSTERY. This play is adapted from Agatha Christie’s first published novel and features the debut of one of Christie’s most famous characters, the cunning Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

Chief suspects include Emily’s much younger newlywed husband, her two stepsons, and her daughter-in-law. Arthur Hastings, a guest at the manor, enlists the help of his friend, the eccentric detective Hercule Poirot, to investigate the murder. Chock full of red herrings, clues, and plot twists, this ingenious detective story will keep audiences guessing until the very end.
