by Guest Blogger: Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Feb 9, 2015

BWW Reviews: Stray Dog Theatre's Excellent Production of AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
by Chris Gibson - Oct 15, 2014

Dame Agatha Christie is considered to be one of the most successful authors of all time, with her mystery novels and short stories selling literally millions of copies. In fact, her work has been produced on stage, in films, and on television. Additionally, a lot of the basic ideas and plots have been utilized in countless mediums. But, despite this proliferation, they still remain clever and entertaining in their own right. Stray Dog Theatre's current production of AND THEN THERE WERE NONE is a prime example, combining a great cast, stylish appointments, and solid direction to provide audiences with a terrific experience that's well worth seeing, even if you've been exposed to this, or similar works, before.
