Presented by the Eckerd Theater Company and Zev Buffman, Executive Producer, Agatha Christie's BBC Murders are four lost and found classic mysteries that have never been presented in Florida.
This Award winning production, adapted for the stage by Judith Walcutt and David Ossman, first presented two seasons ago by Zev Buffman and the International Mystery Writers' Festival in the RiverPark Center, in Owensboro, KY became a stunning international hit and drew audiences from all parts of the world.
The BBC Murders historic origin was initially a BBC Mystery Series just before and after World War II. The manuscripts were lost for more than 50 years due to the London Blitz and post war reconstruction.
Tickets will go on sale with the 2012-13 season later this year.
