Mystery writer Agatha Christie, the world’s best-selling novelist, has also enjoyed unparalleled success as a playwright. Her play The Mousetrap has been running on London’s West End for a record 70 years. And Then There Were None is another one of her killer scripts – in every sense of that word! Ten people unknown to each other – but each apparently known to a “U.N. Owen” – find themselves part of a house party on a deserted island…and then the murders begin. The remaining guests are in a race against time to try to answer the questions: Who is U.N. Owen? Is this person one of the party, and responsible for the murders? And can s/he be identified before everyone winds up dead?
Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure follows the adventures of the Duke of Vienna, who announces he is leaving on a foreign mission, handing power temporarily over to his deputy, Angelo. Instead of leaving, however, the Duke remains in Vienna, watching as Angelo focuses his reformatory zeal on a young man named Claudio, arresting him for fornication and condemning him to death. When Claudio’s sister Isabella, a novice nun about to take her vows, comes to Angelo to plead for her brother’s life, the deputy’s own moral corruption is revealed. The Duke, in disguise, stage-manages the action that follows, and arranges his own form of justice for all parties involved in a suspenseful denouement.
