AND THEN THERE WERE NONE Opens Triad Stage's 18th Season
(Greensboro, NC) - Triad Stage is opening its season by bringing to stage the all-time best-selling mystery. Ten strangers trapped on a dangerous island each have a secret. One by one, they begin to die. Match wits against the master of suspense to catch the killer before there are none. And Then There Were None runs September 9 - October 7, 2018. Opening Night is Friday, September 14.
"I love a mystery," says Founding Artistic Director Preston Lane, the director of And Then There Were None. "The thrill of the unknown puts an audience on the edge of their seats. The real world slips away as the puzzle takes over and soon we've even forgotten we're in a theater. The terrifying chills of a great whodunit send shivers up our spine and makes us wonder who's sitting beside us."
