Agatha Christie’s countdown to murder, And Then There Were None, returns to Milton Keynes Theatre next month.
The Queen of Crime is at her darkest and most chilling in the most popular work of Christie’s long and brilliant career.
A group of ten guests have been invited to a remote, storm-lashed island, off the coast of Devon. One by one the visitors begin to die, their host, an eccentric millionaire, is missing and a recorded message accusing each of them of having a guilty secret.
With only the victims believed to be innocent, who among those who are left can be the killer? The list of suspects shrinks with every new murder.
A cast of stage and screen favourites have signed up to this latest production by Bill Kenwright’s Agatha Christie Theatre Company for their 10th anniversary production.
Paul Nicholas, star of the BBC sitcom, Just Good Friends, first made his name onstage as the original Jesus, in Jesus Christ Superstar. Later this year, he will be back on TV in Eastenders.
The rest of the cast includes: Emmerdale’s Verity Rushworth and Frazer Hines; Soldier Soldier’s Ben Nealon; Susan Penhaligon and former Blue Peter presenter, Mark Curry with Dalziel and Pascoe cop, Colin Buchanan, once again flashing his warrant card.
And Then There Were None appears at Milton Keynes Theatre from July 20-25.
