In a post-truth world, where fantasy and reality combine, what will reign?

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. One unidentified guest among the ten (and then there were nine, and then there were eight, and then... well you know how it goes) begins to off his or her cohabitants one by one through the dark nursery rhyme which becomes a maddening and suspenseful sort of prophesy of impending doom to the terrorized group. 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.
