To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Agatha Christie Theatre Company, AND THEN THERE WERE NONE returns to the stage to follow in the footsteps of the company’s hugely successful WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION and BLACK COFFEE.

Starring BAFTA nominated stage and screen star Paul Nicholas, Colin Buchanan from Dalziel and Pascoe, Susan Penhaligon, who starred in Bouquet of Barbed Wire and A Fine Romance, TV favourite Mark Curry, Emmerdale and West End leading lady Verity Rushworth, Emmerdale star Frazer Hines, and from ITV’s award-winning Soldier Soldier, Ben Nealon.

A group of ten strangers are lured to a remote island off the coast of Devon. Upon arrival it is discovered that their host, an eccentric millionaire, is missing… stranded on the island by a torrential storm and haunted by an ancient nursery rhyme, one by one the guests begin to die… with only the fallen believed to be innocent, who amongst them is the killer?

Based on the best-selling mystery novel of all time, Agatha Christie’s own stage adaptation of this dark and captivating tale will thrill and enthral, as murder unfolds.
