AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
By Agatha Christie
Directed by Dee Dee O’Connor
September 13 – 29, 2019
Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate, for each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally dealt with in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme. One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end.
“A perfect combination of thriller and detective story, this much-copied plot is Christie's greatest technical achievement.” - John Curran, The Guardian
“It is high-concept and its premise is instantly gripping as well as having a profoundly archetypal feel to it. I had a strong sense of being pulled into an eerie dream – and, like the characters on the island, I could not escape.” - Sophie Hannah, The Guardian
