There will be a murder in the auditorium… Metaphorically of course. Peacock Society, the South Asian club at EHS, is proud to present their latest production: “Khatra Express,” a thrilling murder mystery that will leave you on the edge of your seat! Set aboard a train hurtling through the Indian countryside, this play will take you on a journey full of suspense, intrigue, and unexpected twists and turns.

The story follows a diverse cast of characters, all traveling on the Khatra Express for their own reasons. But when a murder takes place on board, everyone becomes a suspect. It’s up to the detectives on board to unravel the clues and identify the killer before they strike again.

The production promises to be a visual feast, with elaborate costumes and a beautifully designed set that recreates the interior of a train. The talented cast has been rehearsing for months, perfecting their performances and bringing their characters to life.

  • Zoya: A pure and somewhat “naive” young woman, born in India, who recently got married to her husband, Aryan, and boards a train to Agra in hopes of celebrating their honeymoon.

  • Aryan: A confident yet quiet young man whose parents are from Trinidad and who is of Indo-Caribbean descent. After recently getting married to his wife, Zoya, the two of them take a train to Agra in order to celebrate their honeymoon.

  • Shanaya: A sassy and strongly-opinionated young woman whose secrets from the past come back to haunt her as she joins the Agra train in hopes of reuniting with her long-lost love.

  • Inspector Daya: The lead inspector on the case of the Agra train. Analytical and attentive, our inspector does everything he can to get to the bottom of the case, even if his assistant gets on his nerves more than he should.

  • Assistant Ravi: The inspector’s assistant who helps out with the case of the Agra train. Our assistant is trendy and a little silly, which often causes disagreements between him and the inspector, while also bringing a sense of comedic relief.

  • Pinkeba and Indrajeet Patel: Older couple who are constantly trying not to kill each other aboard the train.
