RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway, From West End

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme. 

One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end. 

In writing the stage version of her most successful and darkest novels during the Second World War, Agatha Christie responded to the mood of the times by introducing a more positive ending.  The play was a smash hit in the West End and on Broadway.  The play is now available with this ending and with an alternative ending, drawn from the novel and using entirely Agatha Christie's own words.


REVIEWS

“A perfect combination of thriller and detective story, this much-copied plot is Christie's greatest technical achievement.” - John Curran, The Guardian

“It is high-concept and its premise is instantly gripping as well as having a profoundly archetypal feel to it. I had a strong sense of being pulled into an eerie dream – and, like the characters on the island, I could not escape.” - Sophie Hannah, The Guardian 


First presented at St James' Theatre in London on November 17, 1943. The play opened on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City on June 27, 1944. It was directed by Albert deCourville.

This is the second production of this play I've directed at our high school.
It's a convenient, simple set, easily adapted for "in the round" performance. I put one hundred seats on our stage, four aisles to wings.
The students are inspired by the proximity to audience members.
Do it with or without the British accents, or mix it up.
Surefire.
