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

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

Touring again following a sell-out world premiere run at Theatre Royal Bath’s Ustinov Studio and a critically acclaimed national tour in 2019 (under previous title Crimes on the Nile).

Delightfully dotty

Criminally hard to beat

Celebrations of theatricality… a low budget aplomb worth of The 39 Steps

Cannily conceived and impeccably made
