Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None"
At Stoneham May 10 -27

Author Katherine Hall Page & Kate Mattes of Kate's Mystery Book Shop
To Join Cast For Talkback on May 13

Following the success of 2004 – 2005 production of Agatha Christie’s "The Mousetrap," Stoneham Theatre has announced the return of the “queen of the murder mystery” to the stage with "And Then There Were None," May 10 – May 27.   Stoneham Theatre is located at 395 Main Street in Stoneham. 
Historians tell us that in 1939, Christie brought new interest and excitement to the mystery novel genre with the publication of Ten Little Indians.  Intelligent and suspenseful, it quickly became a best seller and was subsequently adapted for the stage as "And Then There Were None," the closing line of the nursery rhyme for which the novel was named.  With the novel widely acclaimed for its “insolvability,” Christie herself considered its plot to be her greatest achievement.
In "And Then There Were None," 10 guests arrive for a weekend holiday on an isolated island only to find a missing host, an intriguing nursery rhyme and murder. The guests, with apparently nothing in common, hear a disembodied voice during cocktails that accuses each of hiding a terrible secret. That night one of the guests dies. The tension escalates as the guests soon realize that not only is there a killer lurking on the island, but that he or she has plans to strike again and again and again.  
Director Caitlin Lowans commented, “Christie’s play thoroughly entertains because it works on so many levels -- humor, suspense and even romance.”

She added, “The audience gets drawn in by the familiar, archetypal characters and the innate desire to resolve their circumstance, but alas, Christie keeps them guessing until the very end.  Mysteries are some of the most fun, interactive experiences an audience can have and we hope this will be just that.”
The cast includes Stephen Russell , Jack Neary, Colin Kiley, Shelley Bolman, Danny Marchant , Ann Marie Shea, Eve Passeltiner, Gene Fleming, Steven Barkhimer, Anastasia Barnes and Robert Najrarian.
