Considered one of the best murder mysteries ever written, And Then There Were None is based on Agatha Christie’s best-selling novel. Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion by a mysterious couple. As they gather for dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, one of the guests is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the survivors realize the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again… and again… and again!
Warning: Three loud gun shots are heard during this production.

“The four actors tackle Mamet’s tough and multilayered script with gleeful abandon. (I almost said they acted the hell out of it, but that would have been truly unforgivable.)…You may emerge not fully understanding Mamet’s views on hell, but you’ll have had both a thought-provoking and a wildly exciting ride.” Gina Dalfonzo, DC Metro Theater Arts Critic.
