Agatha Christie's The Mystery at Hunter's Lodge

MURDER-MYSTERY. Adapted from the short story by Agatha Christie. Roger Havering calls on famed detective Hercule Poirot to investigate the murder of his wealthy uncle, who has been murdered at an isolated hunting lodge on the Derbyshire moors. Indisposed with a bad case of influenza, Poirot agrees to send his colleague Arthur Hastings to investigate but only if Hastings implicitly follows all instructions Poirot wires him. Excited for the opportunity to investigate the case solo and hoping to solve it without Poirot, Hastings travels to Hunter’s Lodge. There, he meets up with Inspector Japp, who has been sent from Scotland Yard and is already one step ahead of him. Suspects include a mysterious black-bearded American and a missing housekeeper. In the end, the wicked may flourish like a green bay tree, but as Poirot says, “at a price, always at a price.” Easy to stage with simple set pieces.
