Poirot: A Musical (Trinity, 2010)

When the great (straight) detective Hercule Poirot is invited to a wedding party, nothing can possibly go wrong. The mansion is secluded, the family is argumentative, and the ducks are on the offensive. Did the butler do it? We don't know, but the wedding guests are taking bets.
