Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one, they are accused of murder; one by one, they start to die.  In this superlative mystery comedy, statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger.  A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none.  Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned.  A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead – poisoned. One down and nine to go!  The excitement never lets up in this ideal thriller based on Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians.

Agatha Christie (1890-1976) is the author not only of The Mousetrap, the longest running stage production in history, but also Witness for the Prosecution and And Then There Were None to name but a few of her greatest stage successes. Her novels have sold more than 2 billion copies around the world, and she is only outsold by the Bible and Shakespeare.  Born in 1890, in Torquay, Devon, England, to an American father and English mother, she wrote her first play Black Coffee (the only play in which she chose to feature Poirot) in 1930, having been disappointed by the way The Murder of Roger Ackroyd had been adapted into Alibi in 1928.  She adapted her bestselling novel And Then There Were None for stage in 1943, giving it a different ending, followed by, in quick succession, Appointment with Death (1945), Murder on the Nile (1946) and The Hollow (1951).  With The Mousetrap (1952), Witness for the Prosecution (1953), and Spider's Web (1954), she became the only female playwright to have three plays running in the West End at the same time.
