Classic thrills and spills on the Nile

IF you like a good old-fashioned murder mystery in an exotic setting, then Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Nile, could be just the ticket for you.

The Agatha Christie Theatre Company will be performing in a stylish new production of the queen of crime’s classic thriller, at Derby Theatre from Monday, February 27 to Saturday, March 3.

Onboard a steamer, newly-weds Simon and his wealthy socialite wife Kay find themselves being pursued by an old flame. Then tragedy strikes. A body is discovered and all fingers point to Simon’s ex-fiancee.

The production stars Agatha Christie Theatre Company regulars Denis Lill (The Royal), Chloe Newsome (Coronation Street), Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier) and Mark Wynter, plus Dynasty favourite Kate O’Mara and Susie Amy from Footballers Wives.

Tickets cost £8-£24 and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
