The multi-award winning New Old Friends are at it again with another instalment in their hugely popular Crimes… series of comedy thrillers (Crimes on the Nile, Crimes on the Coast), and the first of its kind at The Haymarket.

Crimes, Camera, Action will whisk you away to golden-era Hollywood, where you'll be introduced to a new lead detective - a world-weary, hard-boiled private-eye in the mould of Humphrey Bogart: meet Stan Shakespeare. The case? A screen starlet is stabbed as a result of a prop mix-up on set. It sets in motion a typically fast paced and hilarious chain of events that sees a cast of four exceptional comic actors take on multiple roles, sometimes within the same scene.

Expect the usual New Old Friends mix of great theatrical set pieces, the quickest of quick changes, lightning-fast word play and a thrilling plot driving the action at breakneck pace.
