Murder on the Nile
Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Nile” will be co-directed by Center Players Artistic Director Bernice Garfield-Szita and Zach Berman. Set in the 1940s on a paddle steamer traveling on the Nile River, the play tells the story of Simon Mostyn, who has recently married Kay Ridgeway, a rich woman, after having broken up with his former lover Jacqueline. The couple are honeymooning on the paddle steamer, accompanied by a bevy of memorable characters, including Jacqueline, and surrounded by plenty of intrigue. During the voyage, Jacqueline works herself into a state of hysteria and shoots and wounds Simon. A few moments later, Kay is found shot dead. By the time the boat reaches its destination, an audacious conspiracy has emerged — but will the criminals go free?
