from the Agatha Christie Estate
“Hercule Poirot is one hundred years old and never more full of life. He will appear in his second new novel in as many years this year and on feature film screens worldwide in 2017. My grandmother’s best known character continues to invite new interpretations and to inspire other great talents. The theatre is no exception and that is why I am delighted that Ken Ludwig will be bringing his formidable talent and unique voice to what some would say is Poirot’s greatest story. No medium is more collaborative than the theatre and working with Ken has for us always been about also working with his great collaborators. We are delighted that Emily Mann has decided to continue her collaboration with Ken and once again that the McCarter is to be the scene of their crime. The McCarter’s record as an American theatre able to take great works to their full potential is unrivalled and we couldn’t be in better hands”.
