Go Back for Murder is a play adapted by Agatha Christie from her novel Five Little Pigs (also named Murder in Retrospect), which saw her remove the character of Hercule Poirot entirely and replace him with a young lawyer, Justin Fogg.

After receiving a letter from beyond the grave, Carla Crale believes her mother, who died in prison, was wrongly convicted of her father’s murder. It is up to her, Carla, to recreate the scene of the crime and exonerate her memory.

By studying each suspect’s testimony, and the various inconsistencies between them, Carla uncovered a multi-faceted relationship with hidden emotional entanglements.
