 CENTERstage Productions will present Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Nile November 30 – Dec. 8 at the CENTER for Performing Arts in Rhinebeck.

On board a steamer, cruising under the scorching Egyptian sun, honeymooners Simon Mostyn and his wealthy socialite wife Kay find themselves being pursued by an old flame of the newly wedded groom.  Tragedy strikes and a body is discovered, all fingers point to Simon’s ex fiancée.  However, everything is not what it seems and holidaying cleric Canon Pennefather is drawn into a web of intrigue and deceit as he finds himself on the trail of a ruthless murderer.

Agatha Christie’s stage adaptation of the novel Death on the Nile was first performed in 1944 under the title Hidden Horizon; it later opened in the West End and on Broadway as Murder on the Nile in 1946.
