Based on-Agatha Christie’s book And Then There Were None.
This January, step out of the cold and into a world filled with mystery and intrigue as Grand Rapids Civic Theatre produces a dramatic masterpiece. Written by the grande dame of mystery, Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None will keep you guessing until the curtain goes down. Adapted for the stage in 1943, it was a smash hit on the West End and Broadway and it is still surprising audiences today- even mystery fans may be stunned to realize the play has two possible endings!
Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is that each carries a past filled with dark secrets. When they gather for dinner expecting to meet their host, it becomes evident that they have been summoned to atone for those secrets. Which is the greater struggle, the burden of guilt or the quest for retribution?
Enjoyable for Adults | Runtime: 2 hours and 2 minutes with intermission
January 11-13, 16-20, and 23-27
Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm
