Following the success of Crimes on the Nile at The Haymarket, we welcome back multi-award-winning theatre company New Old Friends as they present Crimes On the Coast, a comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (The 39 Steps).

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?

The show enjoyed a sell-out national tour in 2018 (under previous title Crimes Under the Sun) and hits the road again in 2019 featuring four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style. Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noël Coward and PG Wodehouse, you are invited on an hilarious but murderous trip to an English Riviera retreat.
