Lyndon State College’s (LSC) Twilight Players will present Agatha Christie’s classic murder-mystery play And Then There Were None at 7:30 p.m. on November 6, 7, and 8, and at 2 p.m. on November 9, at the college’s Alexander Twilight Theater. This is the story that made Ms. Christie the best-selling novelist of all time and is read the world over in more than 50 languages.
In 1938, ten strangers are invited to a house on a remote island off the coast of Devon, England, by an unknown host. Soon after their arrival they realize that they have been lured to the island for a nefarious reason. The question then becomes, who will survive and, more importantly, who is the killer? Is it the ex-army officer, the nervous doctor, the prim spinster, the judge, the retired General, the young secretary, the police detective, the young playboy, or the butler and his wife? First produced in 1943, And Then There Were None has become one of Ms. Christie’s most popular plays, a perfect blend of suspense, intrigue and humor.
Lyndon State College’s production of And Then There Were None will feature two different female casts. One set of actresses will perform the roles of Vera Claythorne, Emily Brent and Mrs. Rogers on the Thursday and Saturday performances, and another set of actresses will perform on Friday and Sunday.
And Then There Were None is directed by Gianna Fregosi with assistant direction by Jake Machell. Set design is by Bonnie Cleverly. Lighting design is by Anjali Lapierre and technical direction is by Kyle Kurtich.
Admission is by donation, and free to LSC students.
