In Rehearsal

In this classic murder mystery, And Then There Were None, based on Agatha Christie's novel, ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. While they are waiting for the mysterious host to appear, a recording levels serious accusations at each of the guests. Soon they are murdered, one by one. As the survivors try to keep their wits, they reach a disturbing conclusion: one of them must be the killer. This show is presented by special arrangements with Samuel French. Show dates are May 5-7 & 12-14, 2017 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.
