Yes, once more, it’s that favourite time of year for mystery fans, Metro’s annual Christie show. With its exotic setting, aboard a paddle steamer on the Nile, interesting mixture of characters from all walks of life, violent death and multiple suspects, Murder on the Nile is sure to live up to fans’ expectations!
Imagine the dismay of Simon Mostyn and his new bride, the fabulously wealthy heiress, Kay Ridgeway, when they begin part of their honeymoon journey down the Nile, to discover that one of their fellow passengers is none other than Jacqueline de Severac, the girl Simon had thrown over to marry Kay! What better basis for a plot than the “eternal triangle”?
Director, Alison Schamberger, has assembled a strong cast some of whom, like Tom Kavadias ( Canon Pennnefather) and Nina Shoroplova ( Miss ffolliot-ffoulkes ) are very familiar and much loved by Metro audiences. Joining them are Joel D. Montgrand (fresh from his recent success in Lend Me a Tenor, playing Simon), Ivo Cervicek ( coming back after a long absence from the stage to play Dr Bessner) and newcomers, Lucas Simon ( the Steward), Emily Nadeau ( Christina), Greg Radzimowski ( Smith), Marie Farsi (Louise), Julia Fox (Kay), and Breann Grainger (Jacqueline).
