Event Information

Running time: 2 hours

Performed from Mon 30 Sep — Tue 1 Oct

A secluded island hotel just off the English coast becomes a crime scene, as a scandal-inducing femme-fatale is felled. All the guests on the island are suspects, but are they alone and is all quite what it seems?

Following its sell-out world premiere run at the Ustinov Studio in the New Year and Main House debut in May, Bath’s very own multi-award-winning New Old Friends returns.

Crimes On The Coast is a hilariously inventive comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (Associate Director – The 39 Steps, West End). The show enjoyed a sell-out national tour in 2018 (under its previous title Crimes Under the Sun) and hits the road again in 2019 featuring four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style.

Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noël Coward and PG Wodehouse, you are invited on an hilarious but murderous trip to a classic English Riviera retreat.

Monday – Tuesday 7.30pm
Matinee Tuesday 2.30pm

All performances: £20 – £32.50

A booking fee of £1.75 per ticket applies
