"And then there were none" is one of Agatha Christie's most famous mystery stories - indeed, she saw it as one of her most difficult works to write!

First published as a novel in 1939, Christie soon started working on a stage adaption, which premiered in 1943. The play is set on a remote island off the coast of Devon, where ten people (who couldn't be more different) intend to spend a quiet and relaxed summer. Upon arrival, they discover there is no host. Instead, they're welcomed by a prerecorded message - sentencing each and every one to death! They soon realise their only chance to leave the island alive is to find their mysterious host - but can they trust the other guests?

Certainly not your usual crime, this story is thrilling nontheless. Christie managed to sketch a group of people in growing despair, who would do anything to save their neck. With eleven characters of all ages, backgrounds, and genders, it is certain there is a role you'll enjoy reading! (And if not, just come along and have a glass of wine listening to the others).
