Dear friends, supporters, audience, cast and crew,
It’s with a heavy heart we’ve decided we have no option but to postpone our Spring production of ‘And Then There Were None’.
You’ll be aware of the current Government coronavirus guidance – which is to stop all non-essential contact with others. The guidance is advisory for the time being, but things are changing very fast. It may well be a decision that’s taken out of our hands within the coming days, as more stringent restrictions are put in place.
In any event, the wellbeing of our audience, cast and crew is the most important thing. So we really have no choice but to follow the latest guidance in order to protect everyone connected to TWC, as well as the wider community.
It’s a very great shame – this isn’t how we planned to celebrate TWC’s 50 years. The play is rehearsed, the set is built, the costumes are fitted. It all looks magnificent. It will be a great production. But even if we were able to proceed, there wouldn’t be much point with no-one able to come out to see the play. So, with great regret…
But be assured this is au revoir but not goodbye.
‘And Then There Were None’ is ready to roll, and we’re committed to rescheduling it as soon as the current public health crisis has passed.
In the meantime, we’ll issue all advance ticket holders with rain check tickets which can be used for this, or any other future TWC production once the coronavirus emergency is over. If you have tickets, we’ll be in touch over the next few days. If for any reason you don’t hear from us, please feel free to email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nobody knows how long this situation will continue. It seems likely to be months rather than weeks. It’s a worrying time for everybody, so please do take care. Thank you for your continuing support. We’ll keep you posted. And be in no doubt, we’ll be back.
With all our best wishes.
Theatre Workshop Coulsdon
August 1939. Europe is on the brink of war.
Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, isolated from the mainland off the Devon coast. Where their hosts, Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen, are noticeably absent.
As the evening unfolds, each is accused of a terrible crime they are unwilling to admit.
Tension builds, as one by one, members of the party die mysteriously in accordance with a sinister nursery rhyme.
Fear, suspicion and paranoia take hold of the remaining survivors as they realise the killer may be among them.
In the first production of Theatre Workshop Coulsdon’s 50th anniversary year, join us as we bring to life the story that made Agatha Christie the best-selling novelist of all time.
In a new alternate ending, released on the 125th anniversary of her birth, witness how the novel truly ended, as the accused begin to fall.
Please note, this play is not suitable for younger children.
