Austin Playhouse to Present AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, 11/22-12/22
Ten strangers, each with a dark secret, are summoned to the island mansion of an eccentric millionaire, but when the guests arrive their host is nowhere to be found. Lured away and isolated from everything but each other, the guests soon find they are haunted by more than just The Shadows of their past. One by one the guests reveal their guilty secrets, and one by one...they begin to die. Who's the murderous culprit? And who will be next? An all-star cast brings this classic murder-mystery to life!
And Then There Were None stars Christopher Loveless (Rogers), Laura Walberg (Mrs. Rogers), Hildreth England (Vera Claythorne), Brian Coughlin (Philip Lombard), Stephen Mercantel (Anthony Marston), Michael Stuart (William Blore), Dirk van Allen (General MacKenzie), Bernadette Nason (Emily Brent), Steve Shearer (Sir Lawrence Wargrave), and Craig Kanne (Dr.Armstrong).
