New Old Friends presents:

Crimes in Egypt

Directed by James Farrell


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). 

Touring again following a sell-out world premiere run at Theatre Royal Bath’s Ustinov Studio and a critically acclaimed national tour in 2019 (under previous title Crimes on the Nile).
