Fast becoming a Lichfield Christmas tradition, the award-winning New Old Friends return to the Garrick this winter with an all new cast for more seasonal shenanigans in Crimes of The Christmas Pudding after the sell-out successes of Crimes On The Christmas Express last year and Crimes Against Christmas the year before.
Lady detective Artemis Arinae finds herself in the midst of a steamy seasonal crime caper set in high society. Lord and Lady Lorde’s traditional family Christmas looks set to be overwhelmed by lust, greed and a very paranoid butler. Can she place the Prince’s priceless possession and puzzling paramour before anyone gets stabbed in the back? A fast paced, gag-filled, daft romp of a show, with 13 characters played by a cast of just four. What could possibly go wrong?
Jill Myers returns as super sleuth Artemis Arinae, supported by Oliver Malam, Laura Crowhurst and Steven Rostance playing at least 12 other characters!
Oliver and Laura have both performed in Horrible Histories – one on TV and one on tour, whilst Steven was born and raised in Staffordshire and played Jesus in the Lichfield Mysteries in Lichfield cathedral about 15 years ago. He is currently performing in Play That Goes Wrong in the West End.
Crimes of The Christmas Pudding is at Lichfield Garrick 5th December 2018 to 5th January 2019.
