New Old Friends return with Crimes on the Nile!

A cast of just four perform multiple outrageous characters in Agatha Christie inspired comedy-thriller CRIMES ON THE NILE


Following 2018’s sell-out smash hit Crimes Under the Sun, multi-award-winning theatre company, New Old Friends, return to the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven on Tuesday 26 March with another hilariously inventive comedy thriller: Crimes on the Nile!


Belgian detective extraordinaire, Artemis Arinae, is set to enjoy a holiday cruise along the river Nile when tragedy strikes once more. 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?


Praise for Crimes Under the Sun:

“Display of comic acting it would be hard to see equalled anywhere” – Theatre Bath


A versatile cast of just four bring to life lascivious lawyers, crocked captains, fastidious physicians, ardently amorous authors, feuding femme fatales, plodding paramours, colossal kids, friendly first mates and attractive Americans, in this Agatha Christie inspired romp, directed by James Farrell (Associate Director – The 39 Steps, West End).


New Old Friends are an award-winning theatre company dedicated to creating original comedy theatre, founded in 2008 and run by husband and wife team Feargus Woods Dunlop and Heather Westwell.


Heather Westwell, co-artistic director says: "Touring with Crimes Under the Sun was such a joyous experience with such an incredible response from the public that we are over the moon to be taking out another Artemis Arinae comedy thriller. This time we see our hero trapped on a river boat with a cast of shady characters, it features the same brand of multi-role mayhem and invention with even more ambition this time around. It should be a lot of fun."
