2 March – 6 Arpil

The Court Theatre is on track to open its next blockbuster production, Agatha Christie’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS, on 2 March.

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

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 eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case they decide to strike again.

Tickets are selling fast to this limited season at The Court from 2 March – 6 April. Avoid the disappointment of missing out and get onboard today. There’s still time to take advantage of the Early Bird price of $59, a saving of $10 on adult tickets, for the first two weeks of the season. This price will end on opening night. Booking fees apply.
