Crimes Under the Sun

CrimesUnderSunA secluded island hotel just off the English coast becomes a crime scene, as a scandal-inducing femme-fatale is felled. All the guests on the island are suspects, but are they alone and is all quite what it seems?

Award-winning theatre company New Old Friends present Crimes Under the Sun, a comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (Associate Director – The 39 Steps, West End). The show features four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style.

Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and classic thrillers, you are invited on an hilarious but murderous trip to a classic English Riviera retreat.

“A mesmerising mix of murder, mayhem and laugh-out-loud comedy… echoes of those word-play specialists the Two Ronnies.” –  **** The Stage (on Crimes Against Christmas)

“Hugely entertaining… terrific fun” **** The Scotsman (on The Falcon’s Malteser)
