All Day Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express! October 28 - November 28th
Sonora, CA...Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is filled to capacity, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer.

Ken Ludwig’s clever adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express boasts all the glamour, intrigue, and suspense of Dame Agatha’s celebrated novel, with a healthy dose of humor to quicken the pace.

Adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig | Based on Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie | Direction by Jerry Lee

Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
