The Falcon's Malteaser

Cleverly staged and brilliantly acted, New Old Friends present this tongue-in-cheek take on renowned children’s author Anthony Horowitz’s comic mystery. Join Private Detective Tim Diamond and his quick-witted little brother Nick as they embark on their most dangerous case yet. The cast of four bring multiple characters to life – from Mexicans, Russian actresses and cleaning ladies, this fast-paced adventure contains enough twists and turns to keep you utterly engaged throughout. Original musical numbers punctuate the compelling plot, and perfect comic timing from the cast creates a show where even the set changes are hilarious. Ideal for a family outing, kids and adults can both share in the joy that is ‘The Falcon’s Malteser’.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
