Crimes on Centre Court

29th September 2023 - 30th September 2023

 

Presented by New Old Friends in association with MAST Mayflower Studios

Lord Knows the chair of The Whombledun International Invitational Tennis Tournament has died and his son, Hugh, is suspicious. The police won’t take the case so Hugh calls in Perry & Penny Pink, private investigators.

What transpires has all the hallmarks of multi-award-winning New Old Friends particular brand of theatrical hilarity: a cast of four performers play countless characters with quick-fire changes and quicker wits. Expect mirth, murder and mayhem, with a side of tennis.

Crimes on Centre Court, based on a story from the award-winning podcast (#2 in iTunes fiction chart), toured to great acclaim in 2021 and is an ace of a show which you’re sure to (fifteen) love.

This deucey 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.

“A thigh-slapping, belly-aching romp of a whodunit comedy full of ingenious skits.” – British Theatre Guide

“A hilarious serve-and-volley tennis match played out on stage” –The Stage

“Crimes on Centre Court is a delight from start to finish! It is simply, and impressively, a great night out!” – Emma Rice

Running Time: 2 Hours 35 Minutes (Including a 20 minute interval)

Event Reviews

  • Judith

    This is only the second play that I have ever left at the interval. I was so disappointed, the acting was poor especially the main actor whose pronunciation was so bad you couldn’t understand what he was saying. All acting was at the same break neck shouting intensity. Poor script I felt sorry for the actors! Clever set which also stuff took over as the star of the show they moved it about so much!
