Having New Old Friends back in Lancaster...

Published: 9 January 2019

A theatre company inspired by Agatha Christie, Noël Coward and classic Ealing comedies makes a return to Lancaster’s Dukes theatre next month.

New Old Friends will be presenting their latest comedy thriller, Crimes On The Nile, on February 5 and 6 following their Dukes debut last April with Crimes Under The Sun.

A cast of four bring to life lascivious lawyers, crocked captains, fastidious physicians, ardently amorous authors and feuding femme fatales,

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

Crimes On The Nile is recommended for anyone aged 12 plus and is directed by James Farrell who was Associate Director of the West End production of The 39 Steps.

There’s also a 2PM show on February 6.
