And Then There Were None is directed by Gail Pierce who said, “And Then There Were None is one of Agatha Christie’s best mysteries.”
In And Then a There Were None, 10 strangers are summoned to a remote island. The guests have one thing in common- a wicked past they are unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate.
Each stranger has been marked for murder. As the weather turns, and the group is cut off from the mainland, one by one they are murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.
Pierce said, “And Then There Were None is one of Christie’s darkest tales. It is a masterpiece of dramatic construction. It’s growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing until the end.” The play was a smash hit on London’s West End and on Broadway.
And Then There Were None has alternate versions of the ending.
Pierce said, “The ending may surprise you. I believe the delivery can change the whole ending.”
Pierce added, “Agatha Christie’s shows are a delight to bring to life. She gives you the plot and the location and leaves room for creativity. That is why her plays can be seen over and over again because they can each be delivered and interpreted in their own unique way. I believe murder played out on stage adds another dimension.”
Performances will be held at the historic James McCabe Theatre located at 506 5th St. in Valrico. For more information, please visit www.thevillageplayersvalrico.com.
