What happens when famed mystery writer Agatha Christie, changes her locale from the British countryside to a cruise boat on the exotic waters of the Nile?
Audiences can see the result in Village Players' production of MURDER ON THE NILE which runs from January 11 until January 20 at the Village Players Playhouse in Birmingham.
According to director, Tim Wittlinger, "This is a mind boggling, brain twisting, thrilling whodunit. In typical Agatha Christie fashion, MURDER ON THE NILE, will keep you on the edge of your seat analyzing all eleven characters, each of whom has a motive for murder. Christie also manages to bring a dose of humor into the production, as we meet the society matron who can't abide anyone beneath her socially, the doctor who continually wants to give everyone an injection, and the steward who is always waiting for the never-arriving tip."
Part of the fun of watching a mystery is trying to figure out who did it. But even if you guess or are told who the culprit is, Village Players promises that "you will be transported to a beautiful river steamer and that you will enjoy the cruise."
More information and tickets for this production are available on the Village Players' website, www.birminghamvillageplayers.com or by calling the theatre box office at 248-644-2075.
