Murder on the Nile

Artrix, Bromsgrove

Wed 23 Mar to Sat 26 Mar

By Agatha Christie. We are in the thirties and follow the occupants of a boat on a tour of the Nile and look in on the lives of several very rich individuals as the reason for their being here unfolds and the mystery deepens and thickens before your very eyes. The very rich and very beautiful Kay Ridgeway has married. Her guardian, Canon Pennefather, put in his position by her father when her parent was alive, was far away and so she married and went abroad with her new husband without care or concern for anyone other than herself. The husband of this beautiful billionaire has apparently abandoned his onetime love for this stunning Kay Ridgeway, and now he and his bride are honeymooning in the romantic land of the Pharaohs. What could possibly go wrong? You are the fly on the wall. Can you unravel the mystery and pinpoint the culprit, or culprits?

Hobsons Choice

Crescent Theatre, Birmingham

Tue 20 Sep to Sat 24 Sep

Will Mossop is the underpaid assistant to a domineering boot-shop owner Henry Hobson who lords it over his employees and three daughters by day, and drinks heavily with his fellow masons by night. But one daughter breaks free of her father's tyranny, marries Will, and together they set up a rival boot shop. Hobson vehemently opposes this, until circumstances force him to make a choice.
