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.
‘And Then There Were None’ has provided the model for innumerable ‘locked room’ mysteries ever since. It’s also one of Christie’s very few works where there is no ingenious detective – no Poirot or Miss Marple – to solve the case. Just a group of extraordinary characters marooned together on an island, where one by one, they are getting bumped off.
In some ways, it’s the purest mystery Christie ever wrote (and which she herself adapted for the stage).
10 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 a new alternate ending released on the 125th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s birth, witness how the novel truly ended, as one by one, the accused begin to fall…
Please note, this play is not suitable for younger children.
