Crimes Under the Sun

A secluded island hotel just off the English coast becomes a crime scene, as a scandal-inducing femme-fatale is felled. All the guests on the island are suspects, but are they alone and is all quite what it seems?

Award-winning theatre company New Old Friends present, ‘Crimes Under the Sun’ a comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (Associate Director – The 39 Steps, West End). The show features four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style.

Inspired by Agatha Christie, Hitchcock and film noir, you are invited on a hilarious but murderous trip to a classic English Riviera retreat.
