Following its sell-out world premiere run at the Ustinov Studio in the New Year, Bath’s very own multi-award-winning New Old Friends brings its hilariously inventive comedy thriller to the Main House stage for the first time.

Belgian detective extraordinaire, Artemis Arinae, is set to enjoy a holiday cruise along the river Nile when tragedy strikes. All the passengers and staff aboard are suspects, and the murder count is growing, will Arinae’s little grey cells identify the murderer in time?

A versatile cast of just four, brings to life lascivious lawyers, crocked captains, fastidious physicians, ardently amorous authors, feuding femme fatales, plodding paramours, friendly first mates and attractive Americans, in this romp inspired by Christie, Coward and Wodehouse, directed by James Farrell (Associate Director – The 39 Steps, West End).

“Celebrations of theatricality…low budget aplomb worthy of The 39 Steps” The Times

“It’s a proper Good Night Out, cannily conceived and impeccably made” Exeunt Magazine

“A fast-paced, beguiling romp through the thriller genre; a combination of slick storytelling and new and old tricks… for sheer madcap fun you would find it criminally hard to beat” British Theatre Guide
