About Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express
What do you get when you take one of the most memorable fictional detectives and put him on a luxury train that gets stranded by snowstorms? Misdirection, Murder, and Mystery, that’s what!
Join Corban’s theatre for Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. Watch Poirot, the great Belgian detective, investigate his most perplexing and difficult case ever – an American tycoon murdered inside his locked train compartment. Ponder over the possible motives and opportunities of each of the passengers. Almost everyone is a suspect, but almost everyone has an alibi. Christie keeps you guessing until the unexpected and shocking conclusion. And even then, when all is revealed and the players of this drama go their separate ways, the resolution will haunt you – what was fact and what was lie, what was the right conclusion to this astonishing case, what was justice?
One of Christie’s most captivating mysteries, Murder on the Orient Express, will challenge you, will intrigue you, and will leave you thinking, not just about “who done it,” but about justice, love, the legal system, and human nature.
Hope to see you at the station! Hop aboard The Express! It will be an exciting ride.
Corban Theatre strives to worship God by presenting stories that justly depict God, truth, the human condition, healthy and unhealthy relationships, and good and evil. The Bible, of course, does not shy away from showing reality as it is rather than how we might want it to be, and neither do we shy away from telling stories that depict struggle, sin, and controversy, but we do so with an eye toward the redemptive power of Christ to transform our lives and to heal the world.
We recognize that imagination and creativity are two characteristics we see in God from the Creation account forward. As image bearers, we all have an instinctive desire and compulsion to create, to appreciate beauty, to tell stories; some are especially gifted for creative endeavors and find their place in the kingdom as they express this gift. We endeavor to be faithful stewards of our God-given creativity as we serve the playwrights, the play text, the directors, our fellow actors and our audience. We honor the imagination as an appropriate vehicle for communicating truth sometimes with humor, sometimes with pathos. We honor the medium of art. In beautifully unusual ways, it illuminates, enhances and broadens our understanding of God’s character and values.
