Crimes On The Christmas Express

Crimes On The Christmas Express

After the sell-out success of last year’s Crimes Against Christmas the Lichfield Garrick are delighted to be once again teaming up with award-winning theatre company New Old Friends to create an alternative Christmas comedy for adults.

Crimes on the Christmas Express is inspired by Agatha Christie, 39 Steps and Jason Bourne and takes the audience on a hilarious and thrilling train journey through the snow-capped mountains of the East. On board are jewel thieves, circus performers, lovelorn porters, sleazy Americans and countless other characters all brought to life by a cast of just four.

A great night out with friends away from the kids, or a perfect end of year treat with the office.
