And Then There Were None
By Agatha Christie
October 12 - 22
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 strangers who have never met each other or their seemingly absent hosts are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each guest of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to go!
"...there's a strong element of magic to [Chirstie's] brilliance that defies analysis." - The Guardian
