Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" to close early on 14 Jan 2006 at Gielgud

The Agatha Christie thriller And Then There Were None, has posted early closing notices for 14 Jan 2006 at the Gielgud Theatre. (The play was originally booking to 26 Feb 2006).

In a new version adapted by Kevin Elyot, And Then There Were None opened 25 Oct 2005, following previews from 14 Oct 2005, to good notices from the popular press: PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "it's a cleverly tweaked piece of work, adding a sheen of glamour, a streak of knowing camp comedy, and a darker edge to the ruthless retributive justice that governs the proceedings." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "This old 1942 warhorse has had a sophisticated makeover in Steven Pimlott's production of Kevin Elyot's new version, and makes a surprisingly entertaining evening." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "An evening I relished more than I expected."

The cast includes Graham Crowden (General Macarthur), Tara Fitzgerald (Vera Claythorne), Richard Johnson (Justice Wargrave), Gemma Jones (Emily Blunt)

It is directed by Steven Pimlott and is produced in London by Act Productions, Nelle Nugent, Michael Gardner and Karl Sydow.

During the summer of 1938 as the shadow of war looms over Europle, ten strangers, with apparently nothing in common, are lured to an exclusive island retreat by the mysterious U.N. Owen. Over dinner a recorded voice accuses each guest of hiding a guilty and terrible secret. That evening one of the party is found murdered, and the tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them, but is preparing to strike again... and again...

Looking for the best seats...
