And Then There Were None
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Priory Theatre, Kenilworth. From 29 March – 8 April.
A classic Dark Thriller. Directed by Mark Jefferies.
Ten strangers gather at the mansion on Soldier Island, just off the coast of Devon. They are invited under a variety of pretences: for employment, for a detective case, or just for a good time. Before the party truly gets under way, a recording plays that accuses each guest of murder. Baffled, these strangers realize that they have no idea who their host is, and when the first guest is murdered, they understand that they have been brought to the island by a maniac who intends to dispense his own form of justice.
Who is the killer? And who will survive this gathering and make it off the island? As time goes by, and characters fall away in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme, it is clear that the survivors can trust no one.
And Then There Were None is a mystery thriller that set the bar for the “whodunnit” genre. The original novel by Agatha Christie was written and published way back in 1939 and has gone on to be the world’s best-selling mystery with over 100 million copies sold.
