The Falcon’s Malteser
“The last thing I need is an introduction. The last time I introduced myself I took two bullets in the chest, luckily I was behind the chest at the time or I could’ve been hurt” – Tim Diamond
New Old Friends in partnership with Theatre Royal Bath’s Egg, Newbury Corn Exchange, the Natural Theatre Company and Walker Books present:
The Falcon’s Malteser by Anthony Horowitz, adapted for the stage by New Old Friends
A hilarious family film noir pastiche following the adventures of the hopelessly inept private detective Tim Diamond and his sharp witted brother Nick. The plot sees the Diamond Brothers Detective agency on a thrilling case to discover just what is so important about those titular Maltesers.
It features slapstick, comedy songs and a cast of four playing 20 brilliant characters like: The Fat Man (who has lost a lot of weight), Gott & Himmell, Lauren Barcardi, Beatrice von Falkenberg and Betty Cleaner.
The production was one of the hits of the fringe, playing to over 4,500 people with multiple sell-out houses in the prestigious Pleasance Forth venue and achieving great critical acclaim. After Edinburgh the show goes on the road nationally throughout October & November. (List of tour dates here)
The show toured the country last year to sell out houses and great reviews:
“Falcon’s Malteser is ideal for family groups, children from 8 upwards especially boys, if you enjoy children’s theatre with style, an intelligent script and excellent acting.” **** – Children’s Theatre Magazine
