More About Oak Ridge High School Theatre presents Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express is a classic detective novel written by Agatha Christie, first published in 1934. The story revolves around a fictional famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.
Famous detective Hercule Poirot is called back from Istanbul to London on urgent business. While aboard the Orient Express, Poirot meets a host of peculiar characters: an aging Russian princess, her Swedish companion, a Hungarian countess, a Minnesota housewife, a Scottish colonel, an English governess, a French conductor, a disagreeable American businessman, and his anxious secretary. While aboard the train, the angry businessman, Samuel Ratchett, corners Poirot and demands Poirot to investigate a series of ominous letters that have been sent to Ratchett, threatening his life.
As a snowdrift halts the Orient Express in its tracks, Ratchett is found deceased in his locked train compartment. Poirot is tasked by Monsieur Bouc to solve the murder, as the killer could still be in their midst.
