Clayton Community Theatre presents Murder on the Nile by Agatha Christie, directed by Nada Vaughn, May 25 – June 4, 2023
In this play (the basis for the Hercule Poirot movie Death on the Nile), the protagonists are newlyweds who have it all: youth, beauty and tons of dough. Unfortunately, they are joined on their honeymoon journey down the Nile River by the groom's former (and jilted) fiancée—who is also the bride’s former best friend—as well as several other passengers who harbor ill feelings for the happy couple. In classic Christie style, once murder and mayhem occur, the writer dares you to discover the whodunit and the why before the end of the tale—no easy task here. In fact, if you see this ending coming you probably should be writing your own murder mysteries.
Performances: May 25 - June 4 (Thursdays-Sundays) at Washington University South Campus Theatre, 6501 Clayton Rd, Clayton MO 63117; Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00 and Sunday afternoons at 2:00.
Tickets: $15 - $25 (discounts for season tickets, group sales, seniors, and students)
