The play:

The paddle steamer „Lotus“ is about to leave port, the passengers are boarding. Two of these are the newlywed Simon and Kay Mostyn. A voyage upon the <st1:place w:st="on">Nile</st1:place> should be a perfect honeymoon, but that all changes when Jackie, Simon’s ex-fiancée boards the ship. In fact, the honeymoon turns into a nightmare and not everybody on the ship will survive this trip... Luckily, one of the passengers happens to be Hercule Poirot, who starts to investigate immediately...         Enjoy!!


“Difficulties are there to be overcome…” this seemed to be the motto of our new production. These started with the first look into the textbook (“No Hercule Poirot?!”), tough rehearsals (“Is there anyone here who knows his text today?”), a stage of which nobody knew what it should really look like, a photo-shooting that had to be done all over again because the memory card was defective, actors whose timetable suddenly showed regular lessons instead of rehearsal times, bruised ribs (“ouch!”) and more things like that happening all the time...


Nevertheless, “Death On The <st1:place w:st="on">Nile</st1:place>” is a true Agatha Christie classic which has always been very popular, be it as a book, as a film or on stage. A gripping story with an intricate murder plot, which is rather difficult to solve…if you’re not Hercule Poirot, that is (who we put back into the play, of course!).

By the time you are reading this, all difficulties should have been overcome and everything should be ready so that Kepler’s Drama Group can present yet another successful performance. We hope you’ll like it…
