Crimes on the Nile

Presented by New Old Friends

Directed by James Farrell

Following 2018’s sell-out smash hit Crimes Under the Sun, multi-award-winning theatre company, New Old Friends, return with another hilariously inventive comedy thriller.

Belgian detective extraordinaire, Artemis Arinae, is enjoying a cruise along the Nile when tragedy strikes again. The passengers and staff are suspects, the murder count is growing, will Arinae’s little grey cells identify the murderer in time?

A cast of just four perform multiple outrageous characters, inventive set pieces and whisk the plot along in a romp.
