Ten strangers, each with a dark secret, are summoned to the island mansion of an eccentric millionaire, but when the guests arrive their host is nowhere to be found. Lured away and isolated from everything but each other, the guests soon find they are haunted by more than just the shadows of their past. One by one the guests reveal their guilty secrets, and one by one...they begin to die. Who’s the murderous culprit? And who will be next? An all-star cast brings this classic murder-mystery to life!

And Then There Were None stars Christopher Loveless (Rogers), Laura Walberg (Mrs. Rogers), Hildreth England (Vera Claythorne), Brian Coughlin (Philip Lombard), Stephen Mercantel (Anthony Marston), Michael Stuart (William Blore), Dirk van Allen (General MacKenzie), Bernadette Nason (Emily Brent), Steve Shearer (Sir Lawrence Wargrave), and Craig Kanne (Dr.Armstrong).

Agatha Christie adapted her own novel for the stage in 1943. The novel was first published in the United Kingdom by the Collins Crime Club on November 6, 1939. It is Christie's best-selling novel with 100 million sales to date, making it the world's best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time (Publications International lists it as 7th most-printed).

Direction by Lara Toner, set design by Jessica Colley-Mitchell, costume design by Buffy Manners, and lighting design by Don Day.

  1. It was my first Agatha Christie novel. I was interested to order this book after reading the tag "over 100 million copied sold". Also, the plot which has 10 murders was definitely something which a mystery/detective lover like me would grab with both hands. And I must say, the plot is superb and the story proceeds at a fast pace and keeps you guessing. As the characters get murdered one by one, the suspicion towards the survivors keeps changing. Lovely read.
    Now I know where "Gumnam" movie got its plot from.
