Agatha Christie Thriller Opens Winter Theater Season at ENC
“Ten little Soldier boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.”
This February, the Communication Arts Department of Eastern Nazarene College invites you to join in solving the mystery as they present Agatha Christie’s classic And Then There Were None, the stage adaptation of her famous novel, Ten Little Indians.
And Then There Were None will be performed in the Cove Fine Arts Center on the campus of Eastern Nazarene College on February 26, 27, and 28 at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $10 for general admission and $5 for students.
Revolving around the interactions of 10 strangers, lured to an island only to be murdered one by one, the play emphasizes the themes of hypocrisy, guilt, and justice in an unjust world. The interactions between characters present a unique opportunity to explore twists and turns as their past indiscretions come back to haunt them. A precursor to the criminal dramas that flood television today, Christie’s play captures the individual and group psychology of the criminal mind and the questions surrounding it.
Hailed as one of the finest and best selling thrillers ever written, And Then There Were None has been performed on stages around the globe for more than 60 years. It has sold over 100 million copies to date making it the best-selling crime novel, according to Publications International Ltd. Her novel has been adapted to various films and televisions shows and stage productions and more recently a video game.
“And Then There Were None … is an exciting story of suspense, excitement and surprise twists that will keep the audience guessing right up until the end,” said Preston Graveline, director and senior communications major. The production team also includes ENC theatre professor Eunice Ferreira, advisor and producing artistic director; ENC communication arts professor Michael W. Ballard, set/lighting designer and technical director; and Meg Cowie, guest costume designer.
