Olean Theatre Workshop presents Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None"

Widely considered as Agatha Christie's masterpiece, "And Then There Were None" will be performed by The Olean Theatre Workshop for four performances on Aug 10, 11, 12 and 13. Show times are 7:30pm on the 10th, 11th and 12th and 2:30pm on the 13th. Tickets are $10 and can be found on their website or by calling 716-373-7469.

In the novel, a group of people are lured into coming to an island under different pretexts, e.g., offers of employment, to enjoy a late summer holiday, or to meet old friends. All have been complicit in the deaths of other human beings, but either escaped justice or committed an act that was not subject to legal sanction. The guests and two servants who are present are "charged" with their respective "crimes" by a gramophone recording after dinner the first night, and informed that they have been brought to the island to pay for their actions. They are the only people on the island, and cannot escape due to the distance from the mainland and the inclement weather, and gradually all ten are killed in turn, each in a manner that seems to parallel the deaths in the nursery rhyme. Nobody else seems to be left alive on the island by the time of the apparent last death. A confession, in the form of a postscript to the novel, unveils how the killings took place and who was responsible.
