The Astor Street Opry Company announces fall production AND THEN THERE WERE NONE by Agatha Christie, opens October 13th 2011.
Ten little Indian boys went out to dine, one chocked his little self and then there were nine. Ten strangers dining on a secluded island, each accused of hiding terrible secrets.
That’s right! You guessed it! The ASOC has taken on the most famous murder mystery ever! Agatha Christie’s master piece, Ten Little Indians, adapted to the stage and re-titled AND THEN THEE WERE NONE by Queen of Mystery Agatha herself!
The show starts out with 10 strangers, meeting on a remote island by invitation by a mysterious host each perceives as someone different. As the crowd of various characters, such as a retired general, a surgeon, a retired police detective, a soldier of fortune, a young teacher and others gather around the evening meal only to be accused of terrible crimes by a ghostly voice. Shortly there after, the first guest dies and as if by sheer horror of circumstances, one of the 10 soldier statues set upon the mantle is found broken! As the night progresses, the accusations fly as the surviving guests begin to die in a manner paralleling, inexorably and sometimes grotesquely, the old nursery rhyme, "Ten Little Soldiers".
