The Falcon's Malteser

  • Pleasance Courtyard 60 Pleasance Edinburgh, EH8 9TJ United Kingdom (map)

AUG 5 - AUG 31

2pm (not 17th, 24th), 60 mins


After a rip-roaring sell-out national tour, Anthony Horowitz’ The Falcon’s Malteser (adapted for the stage by New Old Friends and presented with Theatre Royal Bath’s Egg, Newbury Corn Exchange, Natural Theatre Company and Walker Books) heads to the Edinburgh Fringe. Featuring slapstick, comedy songs and a cast of 4 playing 20 brilliant characters, this hilarious family adventure will have you rolling in the aisles!

A hilarious family film noir pastiche following the adventures of the hopelessly inept private detective Tim Diamond and his sharp witted brother Nick, The Falcon’s Malteser sees the Diamond Brothers Detective agency on a thrilling case to discover just what is so important about those titular Maltesers! Anthony Horowitz says “(The script) stays very true to the fun and the adventure of the story, presenting the myriad characters with just four young actors and a huge amount of inventiveness. In fact, it's an object lesson in the power of the theatre.


**** “An absolute treat for old and young alike, don't miss it” (What’s On Stage)

**** “The Falcon’s Malteser is ideal for family groups, children from 8 upwards especially boys, if you enjoy children’s theatre with style, an intelligent script and excellent acting” (Children’s Theatre Magazine)
