New year, new Crimes

NEW Old Friends are back at Bath’s Ustinov Studio with their latest comedy thriller, on stage from 8th to 26th January, so forget the gloomy days of January and turn your eyes and your mind south east, to the world’s longest river.

It’s Crimes on the Nile, where tragedy strikes on a holiday cruise.  Belgian detective-extraordinaire Artemis Arinae is preparing to enjoy a relaxing river trip. Will her little grey cells identify the culprit in time …?

In true Agatha Christie-style, all the passengers and staff are suspects and the body count is growing.

Following 2018’s sell-out Crimes Under The Sun and previous Bath favourites Crimes Against Christ­mas and The Falcon’s Malteser, director James Farrell and the cast of four bring to life multiple outrageous characters, inventive set pieces and a romp of a plot!

Performances are nightly from Monday to Saturday at 7.45pm, with 2.30 matinees on Thursday an Saturday. For more details, phone 01225 448844 or visit the website, www.theatreroyal.org.uk/ustinov
