UK tour of hilarious tennis-based murder mystery!

Award winning producer New Old Friends in association with MAST Mayflower Studios are delighted to announce their UK tour of hilarious tennis-based murder mystery Crimes on Centre Court which will visit Greenwich Theatre 13 September ahead of a UK tour.

Crimes on Centre Court is based on a story from the award-winning podcast Comedy Whodunnits for your ears? (#2 in iTunes fiction chart) and toured to great acclaim in 2022. You won’t see it game set and matched anywhere else.

When Lord Knows, the chair of The Whombledun International Invitational Tennis Tournament, dies his son, Hugh, is suspicious. The police won’t take the case, so Hugh calls in private investigators Perry & Penny Pink, to get to the bottom of things. What follows has all the hallmarks of New Old Friends’ brand of hilarity, as a cast of four performers play countless characters with quick-fire changes and quicker wits, in a story that will rally your spirits and leave you wanting a second serve-ing of the volley of gags and visual delights.

The tour will visit Greenwich, Didcot, Bishop Stortford, Portsmouth, Wakefield, Middlesborough, Dumfries, Bury St Edmunds, Newport, Malvern, Northampton, Oxford, Ipswich, Andover, Coventry, Lichfield, Eastbourne, Peterborough, Tewkesbury, Corby, Buxton and York.

Written and directed by Feargus Woods Dunlop with movement direction from Sam Archer.  The show is composed by Musical Director Guy Hughes.  Heather Westwell is Creative Producer.

Crimes on Centre Court is an ace of a show you’re sure to (fifteen) love. You won’t see it game set and matched anywhere else.  Expect mirth, murder and mayhem (with a side of tennis) in this deucey treat.  Book your tickets today!
