by Agatha Christie
The world’s best-selling novelist, mystery writer Agatha Christie, has also enjoyed unparalled 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 Mr “U.N. Owen” – find themselves part of a house party on a deserted island…and then the murders begin. Who is U.N. Owen, and is he responsible for them? What if he is one of the party? Can he be identified before everyone winds up dead? Christie adapted her 1939 novel for the stage in 1947, with a significant change to her original ending. Another ending, closer to the original, was later added to the play by her estate. Two endings to one play – which one will it be? Come to the Jones and see!
