Murder on the Nile, Agatha Christie’s own staging of her famous novel, Death on the Nile, is set on a paddle-wheel steamer cruising the legendary Nile River in 1940’s Egypt. The passengers aboard are abuzz when the famous heiress, Kay Ridgeway, and her penniless new husband, Simon Mostyn, board the ship on their honeymoon. On board is Canon Pennefather, Kay’s guardian, and Simon’s former lover, Jacqueline, who has been dogging their footsteps all through the honeymoon. Also on the boat are a rich, ill tempered old woman with her niece and companion, a rather direct young man, Kay’s maid, and a doctor who nurses a grudge against Kay’s father, all with a reason to kill, adding to the drama and suspense of this classic Agatha Christie mystery. Fatal circumstances await when the idyllic surroundings are shattered by a shocking and brutal murder. You probably won’t figure out whodunit before it’s revealed, though no doubt you will think you have it figured out.
(Friday and Saturday at 8 PM, Sunday at 2 PM.)
