Then, one by one, they begin to dieâ€¦..horribly! Thatâ€™s right! You guessed it! ASOC takes on the most famous murder mystery ever! Agatha Christyâ€™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 beaccused 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, â€œTen Little Soldiersâ€.
Directed by Markus Brown with Set Designer/Set Builder Edward James.
