Great Show, Great Cast, Great Crew

And then there were none... by Agatha Christie is in the middle of a great run. Am I over-using the word? This is a fun show with both suspense and humor, and the cast makes the most of the opportunity. We've had one sellout, and another one coming for this Sunday. Please get your tickets soon, so you don't miss being part of this.

In the play, ten very different people have been lured to an island retreat off the coast of Devon, invited by an enigmatic Mr. or Mrs. Owen. A disembodied voice accuses each of an unpunished murder. Then, one by one the guests themselves are murdered, following the rhyme of “Ten little soldier boys went out to dine. One choked his little self, and then there were nine.” Who is the killer? Is it Emily Brent, the very religious spinster, played by Patricia Sherick-Gronlund? Is it Vera Claythorne, hired as Mrs. Owen’s secretary (Bisbee High School Drama teacher Elizabeth Henley)? Or is it Sir Lawrence Wargrave, played by Charles Feil? Who will survive until the suspenseful final scene?

Performances of And then there were none… will be February 3 & 4 at 7:30 pm with a 3:00 pm matinee on February 5. Tickets are going fast, so get yours now. All performances will be held in the O.G. Squffy Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell in Old Bisbee. Bisbee’s Obscure Productions is grateful for the support of the Bisbee 1000 and Central School Project.
