After a pair of mysterious deaths -- including one from inside a locked room - infamous detective Hercule Poirot is pulled out of retirement to solve the case. Despite his desire to relax and grow vegetable marrows, the ingenious sleuth is compelled to snoop around this quaint hamlet and its surrounding countryside. Will this sleepy 1930s village ever feel quite so cozy again? Will Poirot be able to unravel the knots of this mystery? It's a mystery!
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is one of Dame Agatha Christie's most innovative, clever, and mind-bending mysteries, and has been lauded as the best crime novel of all time by the Crime Writers' Association. Book-It and local playwright Danielle Mohlman (author of Nexus and a renowned theatrical adaptation of Frankenstein) are adapting it for a world-premiere production this February. It will be directed by Jasmine Joshua (director of Irma Vep at Intiman in 2022, and has also directed at Reboot Theatre, Cafe Nordo, 5th Avenue, and Village Theatre). The creative team is taking a modern approach to staging of this show, include modern music remixed and rerecorded in vintage styles, and nontraditional gender casting.
