WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Community Theatre is proudly presenting Agatha Christie’s "And Then There Were None" in the month of April and is promising to keep audience members in suspense right up to the end of the show.
Donna McLaughlin Wyant, a seasoned director and actress of TV, stage and film, is directing this thrilling and riveting production, produced by Joan Lasprogato.
Performances are from April 10 through April 26:
- Shows are at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays,
- at 2 p.m. on Sundays, with
- an 8 p.m. performance Thursday, April 16.
"And Then There Were None" is the world’s best-selling mystery ever and widely considered to be Christie’s masterpiece. Her stage adaptation of this dark and captivating tale thrills and enthralls, as murder unfolds on a remote island off the coast of Devon, England. A group of 10 strangers lured to the home of an eccentric millionaire discover upon arrival that their host is missing.
At dinner, a recorded message is played accusing each of them in turn of having a guilty secret and by the end of the evening, the 10 guests become nine. Stranded on the island by a torrential storm and haunted by an ancient nursery rhyme, one by one the guests begin to die. Only the fallen are believed to be innocent, leaving the audience wondering who among them is the killer.
Wyant’s recent work includes directing "Rogers and Hart: A Celebration" in Old Greenwich and producing "God of Carnage" at the Darien Arts Center. She has also produced "I’m Not Rappaport" and "Frost-Nixon" at the Westport Community Theatre.
“This is truly a stellar cast that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats,” says Wyant, an alumna of the HB Studio and student of Uta Hagen.
Her cast includes Matt Catalano, Elayne Mordoff, Brodey Ott, Kimberley Lowden, Jonathan Jacobson, Phil Lorenzo, Frederic Tisch, John Pyron, Carole Kaye, Barry Alan Hatrick and Nick Kaye.
