A production of a murder mystery-comedy play themed around tennis will be put on later this summer.

Two showings of Crimes on Centre Court will be performed at Brampton Community Centre on August 16 and 17, featuring a small cast by Eden Valley Players playing many characters with ‘quickfire changes and quicker wits’, a promo for the event read.

The New Old Friends theatre company's play had a successful tour in 2022 and toured again in 2023.

The story starts with the death of the chair of the Whombledun International Invitational Tennis Tournament, and his son Hugh is suspicious.

The police won’t take the case so Hugh called in Perry and Penny pink, private investigators.

“What transpires has all the hallmarks of our particular brand of theatrical nonsense,” New Old Friends wrote.

The play is based on a story from their podcast, and is sure to be an ace of a show, with magazine The Stage calling it ‘a hilarious serve-and-volley tennis match played out on stage’.

With some adult humour present, the recommended audience age is 12+.
