Agatha Christie’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park
April 11-May 9
Marx Theatre [Eden Park]

Directed by Risa Brainin

Whodunit? Detective Hercule Poirot is determined to find out in Agatha Christie’s thrilling murder mystery. Ten passengers board the luxurious Orient Express that’s traveling from Istanbul to Western Europe. But after the train unexpectedly stops in the isolated, snow-swept mountains, only nine of them are still alive. A man has been murdered in his room overnight, and suddenly every passenger becomes a suspect. Tensions rise as Poirot searches for the killer lurking in their midst who just may strike again. This masterpiece from the world’s most popular mystery writer promises a suspenseful and exciting evening of theatre that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Suitable for ages 12 and up with minimal adult language. This classic literary mystery is full of dramatic plot twists and multiple acts of violence — like murder (obviously).

HAMLET
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company
April 10-May 24

The mysterious death of a king is followed by his brother’s unconventional ascension to the throne. The Queen’s bed casts young Hamlet, usurped heir to the crown, in the role of reluctant avenger. Incest and intrigue, murder and madness, triumph and treachery all combine to paint one of the most complex and compelling portraits in all of English literature.
