Moonlit nights on the Nile… ancient temples… young love, glamour, money – and murder…

The beautiful young heiress Kay Ridgeway and her newly-wed husband Simon board an Egyptian cruise-ship for their honeymoon. But among the other guests aboard is Simon’s ex-fiancee, determined to follow the couple everywhere they go, wreaking a silent, unnerving revenge.

When Kay is suddenly murdered, suspicion naturally falls on her rival – but what if she wasn’t the culprit?  Agatha Christie’s own adaptation of her novel Death on the Nile, this classic whodunnit is a masterpiece of the genre – a sparkling costume drama packed with twists and turns, set against a backdrop of exotic beauty. No one is what they seem, and as the cruise turns to a nightmare, everyone on board the ship is drawn inexorably into the web of deception, lust and greed – until
finally the noose tightens on the wrongdoer…

TTC’s must-see production of Murder on the Nile is a breathtaking tour-de- force that will keep you guessing until the very last moment.
