Southend Drama Society presents Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None.

And Then There Were None is a 1943 mystery play by Agatha Christie, based on her 1939 book of the same name, described by her as the most difficult of her books to write.

The book is the world’s best-selling mystery, with over 100 million copies sold.

Eight guests arrive at an isolated mansion on an island off the coast of Devon, and are tended to by two married domestics who prepared the house for their arrival. During the first evening a gramophone recording accuses all ten people of past crimes that went unpunished by the law.

Soon they start dying one at a time, and the remaining guests deduce that the murderer is one of their own.

The plot is structured around the ten lines of the children’s counting rhyme “Ten Little Soldier Boys”. Each of the ten victims – eight guests plus the island’s two caretakers – is killed in a manner which reflects one of the lines of the rhyme.

At the end all are dead – but who is the murderer?
