The King of Clubs

Image Picker for Section 0

By Agatha Christie

Blood covered playing cards

Adapted and directed by Michael Gotch

The Oglander family is enjoying a quiet game of bridge in their drawing room when suddenly a woman, covered in blood, staggers in with a cry of “Murder!” before she collapses.

The woman, famous actress Valerie Saintclair, is the only witness to the terrible murder of her former partner Henry Reedburn.  And only beloved idiosyncratic Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot can solve the baffling case!

The REP's audio presentation of Agatha Christie’s The King of Clubs, newly adapted and directed by REP company member Michael Gotch, will have you on the edge of your seat as the brilliant Poirot expertly separates truth from lies and reveals the murderer’s identity. 

The King of Clubs will stream online for FREE through Friday, May 21st.
