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

Crimes On Centre Court comes to the Palace Theatre, Westcliff, from September 15 – 17.

Lord Knows, the chair of The Whombledun International 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 the company’s particular brand of theatrical hilarity: a cast of four performers play countless characters with quick-fire changes and quicker wits.

Crimes on Centre Court, based on a story from New Old Friends’ award-winning podcast will rally the spirits and leave you wanting a second serve-ing of the volley of gags and visual delights.

New Old Friends have built a national reputation with their wildly inventive set-pieces, twisty plots and commitment to unadulterated entertainment.
