|Play dates||10 March 2010|
After seeing Agatha Christie’s famous play “The Mousetrap” at the IB classes’ London trip, it was decided that the play to follow “Macbeth” should be a period murder mystery. Directors Thessa van Aerde and Ad Bruynzeels adapted the screenplay of the 1978 film version of Agatha Christie’s “Death on the Nile” to a stageplay; Ton Sips oversaw the art direction and a crew of students turned the cast members into glamourous 1930s characters by choosing the right costumes and doing wonderful things with hair and make-up.
The play was a great success and several members of the audience had no clue as to who the murderer could be until Poirot revealed him.
Wealthy heiress Linnet Doyle and her husband Simon intend to spend a splendid honeymoon in the shape of a cruise on the Nile. However, most of the fellow passengers seem to hold a grudge against Linnet – Simon’s former fiancée and now stalker Jackie even expresses the wish to kill Linnet.
So when Linnet is found murdered in her bed the morning after Jackie has shot Simon in the leg, detective Hercule Poirot has no shortage of suspects. But the truth baffles even him.
