A Mystery Debut

Peninsula Players Theatre continues its 79th with Agatha Christie’s classic whodunit And Then There Were None. While the Players have produced other Christie works And Then There Were None, adapted from her novel, makes its Players debut with this production.
Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on isolated Solider Island. When the only ferry leaves the island and the host fails to appear, they are marooned and cut off from everything but each other. A mysterious recorded voice plays and accuses each of murder. One by one they start to die.
Christie published her book in Britain in 1939 and it was serialized in the United States in the Saturday Evening Post. “The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written,” said a New York Times reviewer.
The cast of And Then There Were None includes Players veterans Tom Mula and Carol Kuykendall as Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, part of the household staff; Erica Elam is Vera Claythorne, a young woman lured to the island to be the host’s secretary; Sean Fortunato as Anthony Marston, a flashy, reckless chap; Joel Hatch as William Blore, mysteriously posing as a gentleman; Kristine Thatcher as Emily Brent, a self-righteous woman fond of her bible; Dale Benson as General MacKenzie, a retired officer; Matt Holzfeind as Philip Lombard, a former military man involved in questionable activities; and Tim Monsion as retired Judge Sir Lawrence Wargrave.
