Murder on the Canadian - The Stage Play

Murder on the Canadian is a comedy thriller for the entire family. Based on Eric Wilson's global bestseller, the stage play sees a young would-be detective stumble into a real murder aboard The Canadian, the famed transcontinental train.

Scenes are set in the train's Dining Car, on the apron, and occasionally in the audience. The script provides character descriptions, a props list, and thoughts regarding the staging.

Young actors can successfully portray all of the characters in the story, including the adults. The play can be performed in a very simple manner in either a school gymnasium or on an empty stage, but producers are encouraged to add visual effects and/or sets as required.

Murder on the Canadian is a suspenseful story that has the potential to bring in large audience numbers. For more information please e-mail:
