Classic Christie set to thrill Theatre Royal
Presented by the Irving Stage Company at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds, October 22 to 26.
One of Agatha Christie's most successful thrillers is brought to theatrical life this Autumn in the Irving Stage Company's production of And Then There were None. This masterpiece of suspense has the familiar Christie hallmarks of 1930s glamour, intriguing characters, spine-tingling chills and a healthy handful of red herrings.
The book of the same name is Dame Christie’s best selling novel and sees ten people stranded on the lonely Soldier Island when their hosts send word that they have been detained. It soon becomes clear that they have been lured to the island and one by one they start to die according to the rhyme “Ten Little Soldier Boys”.
Performed by a cast of local actors, many of whom are familiar to Theatre Royal audiences, the play marks the directorial debut of Kathryn Smith, an experienced actress and singer and Agatha Christie devotee. "This play was first performed 70 years ago," says Kathryn, "and it still has the power to thrill and entertain us. The clever, complex plot draws us in, and shows us why Christie remains such an icon for us today."
The Irving Stage Company is presenting the play at the Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, from Tuesday, October 22 – Saturday, October 26. Performances will be at 7.30pm nightly, with a matinee on Saturday, October 26, at 2.30pm.
