"Murder most fun" British Theatre Guide

Press Performance: Wednesday 16 Jan 7pm

Following 2018’s sell-out smash hit Crimes Under the Sun, Bath’s very own multi-award-winning theatre company, New Old Friends, returns with another hilariously inventive comedy thriller. The show will open with an exclusive three-week run in Bath before heading out on a large national tour.

Belgian detective extraordinaire, Artemis Arinae, is set to enjoy a holiday cruise along the river Nile when tragedy strikes once more. 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?

Directed by James Farrell (RSC, 39 Steps West-End) the cast of four brings to life multiple outrageous characters, inventive set pieces and whisks the plot along in a romp.
