From the company that brought you THE HOLLOW, AND THEN THERE WERE NONE and WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION, Wimborne Drama Productions return to the Tivoli Theatre with another classic thriller from Agatha Christie.

On board a paddle steamer, cruising under the scorching Egyptian sun, honeymooners Simon Mostyn and his wealthy socialite wife Kay find themselves being pursued by an old flame of the newly wedded groom. Then tragedy strikes. A body is discovered and all fingers point to Simon’s ex-fiancée.

But everything is not what it seems, and holidaying cleric Canon Pennefather is drawn into a web of intrigue and deceit as he finds himself on the trail of a ruthless murderer.

With as many twists and turns as the great river itself, MURDER ON THE NILE will keep you guessing right to the end. The play was adapted for the stage by Agatha Christie from her 1937 novel Death on the Nile and is produced by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD. Directed by David Pile.

A Victorian thriller
by Patrick Hamilton
21st-23rd February 2019
Tivoli Theatre Wimborne
Tel: 01202 885566
Tickets £13 evenings, £11 Saturday matinee *

This classic Victorian thriller is a powerful story of a young woman psychologically dominated by her husband.

While Jack Manningham is out on the town each evening his wife Bella stays at home alone, believing she’s losing her mind. She can’t explain the disappearance of familiar objects, the mysterious footsteps overhead or the ghostly flickering of the living room gaslights. The surprise arrival of retired Detective Rough leads to a shocking discovery that will shake her respectable Victorian marriage to its core.

Gaslight was first staged in 1938 and won Ingrid Bergman an Oscar for her role in the 1944 film version. As well as his other great play Rope (filmed by Alfred Hitchcock), Patrick Hamilton wrote several acclaimed novels, including Hangover Square and the trilogy Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky.

The play is directed by Sam Moulton and produced by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
