Following last year’s hugely successful production of ‘The Ghost Train’, the Brookside Theatre are proud to present a stylish and exciting new production of the Queen of Crime’s classic thriller, MURDER ON THE NILE.
On board a steamer, cruising under the scorching Egyptian sun, honeymooners Simon Mostyn and his wealthy socialite wife Kay find themselves being pursued by an old flame of the newly wedded groom. Tragedy strikes… a body is discovered and all fingers point to Simon’s ex fiancée but everything is not what it seems and holidaying cleric, Canon Pennefather is drawn into a web of intrigue and deceit as he finds himself on the trail of a ruthless murderer.
MURDER ON THE NILE is unarguably one of Agatha Christie’s most iconic thrillers, packed full of autocratic dowagers, bright young things, suspicious foreigners, exotic locations and a plot which twists and turns like the Nile itself.
‘An exhilarating night out.’ – The Herald
‘A sublime homage to the Christie masterpiece.’ – The Gazette
