And Then There Were None

 

 

 

 

September 2006

For their first production of the 2006/7 season, Ashby Dramatic Society chose the classic Agatha Christie thriller And Then There Were None. Directed by Ken Ward, this play was a gripping 'edge of the seat' thriller by the master of the genre.

Ten strangers are invited to a lonely house on isolated Soldier Island. They soon discover that, not only have none of them ever met their host, but they are now stranded on the island. A mysterious voice accuses each one of them of murder and proceeds to exact justice.

Tension mounts as one by one the guests are dispatched through the ingenious plotting of the unseen host and the chilling words of a children’s nursery rhyme. As first one and then another dies, the tension mounts as they realize that the killer is one of themselves. With only two people remaining, it becomes apparent that one of the deaths was feigned. The real killer appears but, are they able to outwit him?
