LCTC Murder on the Orient Express
Join the Lewis & Clark Theatre Company for a performance as Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” hits the stage with a train full of suspects and an alibi for each one.
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 dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.
