Poirot and Hastings

Who poisoned the wealthy Emily Inglethorp, and how did the murderer penetrate and escape from her locked bedroom?

The brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot makes his unforgettable debut in Jon Jory's dynamic adaptation of Agatha Christie's first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. This new adaptation visits 30 locations in 80 minutes - fast-paced and stylised, this show will be a fun romp as we join Poirot and Hastings on their first adventure together!

Poirot, a Belgian refugee of the Great War, is settling in a small village in England near the remote country manor of Emily Inglethorp, a friend who assisted him in starting his new life. Poirot's friend, Hastings, arrives as a guest at her home. When Emily is killed, Poirot uses his detective skills to solve the mystery of who killed her! Was it her fawning new husband, Alfred; her volatile housekeeper, Dorcas; her companion, Evelyn Howard; or was it Cynthia Murdoch, the pretty nurse who works in a nearby hospital dispensary? Plot twists and red herrings abound in this dynamic and engaging new adaptation of Agatha Christie's first novel.
