Florida Repertory Theatre’s 25th anniversary season continues with a thrilling mystery, And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie.
In the chilling whodunnit, ten strangers are summoned to a remote island by a mysterious host. When one of the guests turns up dead, the remaining visitors find themselves in a beat-the-clock game of life and death as they attempt to unravel their connections and identify the culprit.
The production runs in the Historic Arcade Theatre Dec. 2 – 18, with discounted previews Nov. 29 – Dec 1.
Set in 1940’s England, And Then There Were None tells the story of ten strangers who, after receiving an intriguing invitation from a mysterious host, head off to a remote island for a weekend getaway.
Upon arrival, bad weather maroons the group making them easy targets for foul play. As past secrets are revealed, mayhem unfolds and one by one, guests fall prey to murder. Will the visitors identify the assailant before it’s too late?
“Audiences get to exercise their sleuthing skills when they join us for this suspenseful tale, and our talented cast will have them mesmerized as they bring Christie’s characters to life on the stage,” said Greg Longenhagen, producing artistic director. “This play is notorious for having two endings to choose from… which will Florida Rep deliver – option A, B, or both? Attendance is required to find out!”
The cast of And Then There Were None features ensemble members V Craig Heidenreich (Into the Breeches), William McNulty (An Inspector Calls), Sara Morsey (Driving Miss Daisy), and Peter Thomasson (A Christmas Carol).
Dana Brooke (Alabaster) and Ellyn Heald (An Inspector Calls) make a return to Florida Rep’s stage, and Michael Stewart Allen, Jason Blackwater, Sam Crabtree, Seth Robert Patterson, and Sean-Michael Wilkinson make their Florida Rep debuts.
Eleanor Holdridge returns to Florida Rep after directing Into the Breeches! during Season 24. She is joined by an expert creative team including set designer Dennis Maulden (Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill), costume designer Charlene Gross (Morning After Grace), lighting designer Todd Wren (Driving Miss Daisy), sound designer Katie Lowe (Incident at Our Lady of Perpetual Help) and ensemble stage manager Janine Wochna (Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill).
Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English with another billion in foreign languages.
Christie is the most widely published author of all time and, in many languages, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. She is the author of 66 crime novels, 150 short story collections, over 20 plays, and six novels written under the name Mary Westmacott.
