 Agatha Christie, master of the murder-mystery drama, captures the thrill of her best-selling novel for the stage in And Then There Were None. Ten strangers are lured to a secluded island under the false pretense of being guests in a house off the coast of Devon. It quickly becomes apparent that all is not as it seems. Each guest has guilt and a secret. These secrets are exposed as the game of a sadistic avenger is revealed. A nursery rhyme, detailing the fate of “ten little soldiers” begins to predict the fate of the unwilling guests as well. One by one, the guests fall prey to the madman vigilante—a madman who can only be one of them. And Then There Were None asks, “Who is innocent?”, “Who is guilty?”, and “Who will be left standing, in the end?”.

PERFORMANCES ARE FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY FROM SEPTEMBER 27 TO OCTOBER 13. FRIDAY AND SATURDAY PERFORMANCES ARE AT 7:30 PM AND SUNDAYS ARE AT 6:00 PM.
