Bill Kenwright by special arrangement with Agatha Christie Ltd presents Agatha Christie's Murder on the Nile
The Official Agatha Christie Theatre Company is delighted to announce that Nichola McAuliffe is to join the highly successful UK tour of MURDER ON THE NILE as ‘Miss ffiliot-ffoulkes’, the role played until recently by Kate O’Mara, who has had to withdraw from the production due to ill health. Nichola will play the role in Coventry, Sheffield, Aberdeen, Dublin and Poole.
 
Nichola McAuliffe is one of Britain’s best-loved actresses and has had a long and varied career on stage and on screen. Her television credits include Sheila Sabatini in seven series of ITV’s Surgical Spirit, Anita in Coronation Street, and Vivian Rook in Dr. Who. Recent theatre credits include the UK tour of Alan Bennett's The Lady in the Van, Hay Fever at the Rose Kingston, The Mikado at the Gielgud Theatre and Plague over England at the Finborough. She enjoyed great success with her own play A British Subject, at the Edinburgh Fringe, at London’s Arts Theatre and off Broadway.
 
Murder on the Nile also continues to star ROBERT DUNCAN, prolific stage actor and star of the television hit Drop the Dead Donkey, as ‘Canon Pennefather’, SUSIE AMY (71 Degrees North and Footballers’ Wives), as ‘Kay Mostyn’, BEN NEALON, fondly remembered as ‘Capt Jeremy Forsythe’ from the long running ITV drama Soldier Soldier, as ‘Simon Mostyn’, and 60’s pop idol, MARK WYNTER as ‘Dr Bessner’.
 
On board a 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. Tragedy strikes and a body is discovered, all fingers point to Simon’s ex fiancée. However, 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.
 
Agatha Christie’s stage adaptation of the novel Death on the Nile was first performed in 1944 under the title Hidden Horizon; it later opened in the West End and on Broadway as Murder on the Nile in 1946.
 
Murder on the Nile follows the hugely successful The Hollow, The Unexpected Guest, And Then There Were None, Spider’s Web, Witness For The Prosecution, and Verdict. This latest production from The Official Agatha Christie Theatre Company directed by JOE HARMSTON promises a host of colourful characters and all the twists and turns of a classic Christie, to keep you guessing to the final shattering climax.
