Crimes on Centre Court

Friday 30th Sep 2022, Auditorium

Full Price £18.50

  • A woman is sitting on a chair and a man is getting hit with tennis balls in front of the backdrop of a tennis court. They have shocked expressions on their faces.

Multi-award-winning New Old Friends bring another dose of mirth, murder and mayhem, this time with a side of tennis.

When Lord Knows, the chair of The Whombledun International Invitational Tennis Tournament, dies, his son Hugh is suspicious. What transpires has all the hallmarks of the company’s particular brand of theatrical hilarity: a cast of four performers play countless characters with quick-fire changes and quicker wits.

This is an ace of a show which you’re sure to (fifteen) love. This deucey summertime treat will rally the spirits and leave you wanting a second serve-ing of the volley of gags and visual delights. You won’t see it game set and matched anywhere else. New Old Friends have built a national reputation with their wildly inventive set-pieces, twisty plots and commitment to unadulterated entertainment.

  • “A non-stop bonanza of wit”
