From Samuel French:
Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they
start to die. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a
house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house
succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "soldiers" met his death
until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and
hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice
accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to
go! The excitement never lets up in this ideal play for schools, colleges, and community theatres.
"And Then There Were None endures with a no-nonsense plot -- straightforward and entertaining in a
subdued British way." - News Works, Read More
"Deaths might be incredibly gory - Christie, a nurse, was a poisons expert - but her dialogue was often
nothing short of hysterical." - broadwayworld.com, Read More
