Based on Agatha Christie’s thrilling mystery, Murder on the Links features famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and his friend Captain Hastings. Poirot arrives in France to find his client brutally murdered and lying face down in a shallow grave on a golf course. But why is the dead man wearing an overcoat that is too big for him? And for whom was the impassioned love letter in the pocket? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse.
A World Premiere
This new adaptation of the classic novel will be workshopped in the Spring with director Todd Nielsen and adapter Rick Robinson, and will make its world premiere on the Oregon Cabaret when it opens in the Fall!
Were it movie, Poirot:Murder on the Links would be rated PG-13, with mild onstage violence, some adult themes, and discussions of violent crime.
