Following 2018’s sell-out smash hit Crimes Under the Sun, multi-award-winning theatre company, New Old Friends, return with another hilariously inventive comedy thriller. 

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.

Directed again by James Farrell (RSC, 39 Steps West-End) the cast of just four bring to life multiple outrageous characters, inventive set pieces and whisk the plot along in a romp.
