Simon Mostyn has recently married Kay Ridgeway, a rich woman, having thrown over his former lover Jacqueline. The couple are on their honeymoon on the Lotus, a paddle steamer on the Nile, accompanied by a bevy of memorable characters. Among those present are Canon Pennefather, Kay’s guardian, and Jacqueline, who has been dogging their footsteps all through the honeymoon. Also on the boat are a rich, ill tempered old woman with her niece and companion; a rather direct young man; a German who nurses a grudge against Kay’s father; and Kay’s maid.
Fridays, May 4, 11, and 18 at 8 pm;
Saturdays, May 5, 12, and 19 at 8 pm;
Sundays, May 6, 13, and 20 at 3 pm
During the voyage, Jacqueline works herself into a state of hysteria and shoots at Simon, wounding him in the knee. A few moments later, Kay is found shot in her bunk. By the time the boat reaches its destination, Canon Pennefather has laid bare an audacious conspiracy and has made sure the criminals shall not go free.
Written by Agatha Christie • Directed by Michael Ackerman
