And Then There Were None
By Agatha Christie
Directed by Aaron Reed
Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall the floor and break one by one, as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten ‘soldiers’ met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead – poisoned. One down and nine to go!
Performances commence on Wednesday 28th November and conclude on Saturday 1st December 2018 at The Kings Theatre, Gloucester.
