Twin City Players announces the first production of its 2023-2024 91st Mainstage Season, the dramatic comedy mystery, Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig. Opening night will feature complimentary wine from Contessa Wine Cellars.

The exotic Orient Express is about to go off the rails. With a train full of remarkable suspects and an alibi for each one, it’s the perfect mystery for famed detective Hercule Poirot. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The next morning, an American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed, his door locked from the inside. Isolated with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on Poirot to identify the murderer before they strike again.
