AND THEN THERE WERE NONE by Agatha Christie
In this superlative mystery comedy - originally titled Ten Little Indians – ten strangers arrive on an island invited by an unknown host. Each of them has a secret to hide and a crime for which they must pay. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder. Then, one by one, they succumb to a diabolical avenger.
This is the story that made Agatha Christie the best-selling novelist of all time. “It was so difficult to do,” she writes, “that the idea had fascinated me.” It was an idea that is now the basis for many Hollywood horror films and has become a cliché to modern audiences. But, it was the Queen of Crime who was the first to do it so successfully that it has become her most adapted piece. And now X*ACT is bringing it back to Xenia to kick-off “The Agatha Christie Theatre Festival.”
