Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None
Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger.
A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to go!
Adult Male Roles (8):
Judge Lawrence Wargrave - Recently retired, Judge Wargrave is an intelligent old man with a commanding personality.
Dr. Edward George Armstrong - Gullible and slightly timid. A recovering alcoholic who once accidentally killed a patient by operating on her while drunk.
William Henry Blore - A former police inspector, Blore is a well-built man whose experience often inspires others to look to him for advice. As a policeman, he was corrupt and framed a man at the behest of a criminal gang. His boldness often verges on foolhardiness.
Philip Lombard - A mysterious, confident, and resourceful man who seems to have been a mercenary soldier in Africa. Lombard is far bolder and more cunning than most of the other characters. His weakness is his chivalrous attitude toward women.
Thomas Rogers - The dignified butler. Rogers continues to be a proper servant even after his wife is found dead and the bodies begin piling up.
General John Gordon Macarthur - The oldest guest. Macarthur is accused of sending a lieutenant to his death during World War I because the man was Macarthur's wife’s lover. Once the first murders take place he is so guilt-ridden about his crime that he becomes resigned to his death and sits by the sea waiting for it to come to him.
Isaac Morris - A shady, criminal character hired by the murderer to make the arrangements for the island. Morris allegedly peddled drugs to a young woman and drove her to suicide.
Anthony Marston - A rich, athletic, handsome youth. Tony Marston likes to drive recklessly and seems to lack a conscience. He killed two small children in a car accident caused by his speeding, but shows no remorse.
Adult Female Roles (3):
Vera Claythorne - A former governess who comes to Indian Island purportedly to serve as a secretary to Mrs. Owen. Vera is one of the most intelligent and capable characters but suffers from attacks of hysteria and reacts nervously to the uncanny events on the island.
Emily Brent - An old, ruthlessly religious woman who reads her Bible every day. Unlike the other characters, she feels convinced of her own righteousness and does not express the slightest remorse for her actions related to a servants suicide.
Ethel Rogers - Rogers’s wife. Ethel is a frail woman, so much so, that the death of Tony Marston makes her faint.
