Round 3 fo the Murder On The Nile Character Parade – its Smiffy !

Here’s the third of our profiles of the Murder On The Nile characters. This time is the very ordinary Mr Smith – but……is he as ordinary as he is saying ….img_2433

WHO ARE YOU?
Depends who’s asking. I still don’t really know, but I hope to find out one day. In the meantime, I go by the given name of Paul Winspear
WHO’S YOUR CHARACTER?
Smith. William Smith. Or, in the street version called Moider on da Nile, I play Will.I.Am Smith.According to Wikipedia, he’s a “wise-cracking kid”. Well, they’ve got the wise-cracking bit right – he’s got some lovely, ascerbic one-line put-downs (not like me at all).
He’s flying solo on the paddle steamer Lotus. He’s a Communist sympathiser who sides with the workers of the world rather than society’s wealthy and privileged elite – although he has something to hide on that front.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE LINE?
“Talking of crime, I feel something should be done about your aunt. A nice little dose of arsenic, for instance.”
WHO DO YOU RECKON DID IT?
I hope they all did it so that the whole goddam privileged bunch can be fed to the jackals. But if I had to name one, then I’d go for the parson, Canon Ambrose Pennyfather, Kay Mostyn’s godfather – he looks shifty, not at all avuncular and needs the money for his “new Jerusalem”. He’ll probably pin it on one of the hard-working beadsellers though. But don’t rule out a sniper on the sandy knoll.
Is he right ? to find out you’ll have to come to the Rhodes Arts Complex on 28-30 March to see  – tickets here
