With twists and turns to keep audiences guessing until the very end, Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None is the best-selling crime novel of all time with more than 100 million copies sold worldwide.
Ten strangers are lured to a solitary mansion off the coast of Devon. When a terrible storm cuts them off from the mainland, and with their hosts mysteriously absent, the true reason for their presence on the island becomes horribly clear, as secrets from their past come back to haunt each and every one of them.
And Then There Were None is part of 2021 Made In Northampton season.
Having previously directed Gaslight, Love From A Stranger and Ghosts at Royal & Derngate, Lucy Bailey is also behind the long-running production of Agatha Christie’s Witness For The Prosecution at London County Hall. Reuniting the creative team behind the smash-hit Love From A Stranger, she returns to Northampton with UK Theatre Award-winning designer Mike Britton (A Tale Of Two Cities, Royal & Derngate) to direct this spellbinding new production of Christie’s greatest murder mystery.
Director Lucy Bailey commented: “Set in 1939, this is Agatha Christie’s most popular novel but also one of her darkest, reflecting the impending sense of doom of a world on the brink of war. Its depiction of a group of strangers stranded in a crisis of their own making feels very in tune with today’s climate emergency.”
They will be joined by Lighting Designer Chris Davey (Beyond The Horizon, Royal & Derngate and National Theatre; Dial M For Murder, West Yorkshire Playhouse; Gaslight, Royal & Derngate), with further creative team, and casting, to be announced shortly.
The Royal and Derngate has now been awarded SOLT’s See It Safely mark, which assures that the venues is COVID Secure and is following all the latest guidance and standards to ensure patron safety.
