Crimes on the Coast

New Old Friends present: CRIMES ON THE COAST comedy thriller at The Merlin

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 is all quite what it seems?

Frome’s multi-award-winning theatre company New Old Friends present Crimes On the Coast, a comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (The 39 Steps, West End). The show enjoyed a sell-out national tour in 2018 (as Crimes Under the Sun) and tours again by popular demand. Four actors play multiple characters, in a romp of inventive theatricality.

Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noel Coward & PG Wodehouse, you are invited on an hilarious but murderous classic English Riviera retreat.
