New Old Friends present


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 this the first crime this idyllic island has witnessed?


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.


"A mesmerising mix of murder, mayhem and laugh-out-loud comedy... echoes of those word-play specialists the Two Ronnies." –  **** The Stage (on Crimes Against Christmas)


“Hugely entertaining… terrific fun” **** The Scotsman (on The Falcon’s Malteser)
