by Payton McCarthy - Oct 7, 2018

Ten strangers are assembled to Indian Island as the guests of the mysterious U.N Owen (or 'unknown') in Agatha Christie's legendary classic, And Then There Were None. However, as the initial dinner party is interrupted by the prerecorded voice of the group's absent host accusing each individual of murder, things take a dangerous turn.

Now playing at The Arts Center of Cannon County through October 13th, the Cyndie Verbeten directed production and her team of deeply skilled artists have assembled a production that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat, constantly questioning each potential mastermind, and leaves theatre-goers begging to know who is responsible for the shocking deaths at hand.
