Crimes, Camera, Action

  • Show Information
  • Reviews

After almost a year without performing the multi-award-winning New Old Friends are so happy to be back touring with the latest show in their hugely popular ‘Crimes…’ series of comedy thrillers. Crimes, Camera, Action whisks the audience to golden-era Hollywood and introduces a new lead detective, a world-weary, hard-boiled private-eye in the mould of Humphrey Bogart: meet Stan Shakespeare.

The case? A screen starlet is stabbed as a result of a prop mix-up on set. It sets in motion a typically fast-paced and hilarious chain of events that sees a cast of four exceptional comic actors take on multiple roles, sometimes within the same scene. Expect the usual New Old Friends mix of great theatrical set pieces, the quickest of quick changes, lightning fast word play and a thrilling plot driving the action at breakneck pace.


The performance is sold on a socially-distanced basis.

Theatre is best enjoyed with family and friends. When you look at the seating plan to book your tickets for this show, you will notice that there are gaps between available seats to accommodate social distancing, but you will be able to enjoy the show with your bubble. To make sure that social distancing is adhered to across the auditorium, you will only be able to book all of the seats within a ‘bubble’. If your required bubble size is not available (including larger groups!), or you have any access needs, please get in touch with us on 01392 72 63 63 (Tue-Sat 10am-2pm) or via boxoffice@exeternorthcott.co.uk and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

A no quibble refund policy applies whenever Covid affects you or us. Find our more about our Coronavirus measures here.
