Audiences will be treated to a little brain-teasing murder mystery when the Lichfield Players open their new season in September with Agatha Christie’s most famous murder mystery.

And Then There Were None runs at the Lichfield Garrick from September 30.

Director Brian Todd  explained that audiences may well recognise some of the cast.

He explained:

“The cast is very strong and audiences will recognise many familiar faces from previous Players’ productions as well as Shakespeare in the Park and the 2009 Medieval Mysteries. And we’re delighted to have three incredibly talented young actors as part of the ten-strong ensemble.

“Chris Jenkins most recently appeared as Lennox in Shakespeare in the Park’s Macbeth and is applying for a place at Music and Drama School, Robbie Beck was one of Edexcel exam board’s top 10 students for GCSE Drama in 2008 and played obsessive fashion photographer Dave Ogden in the Players’ 2008 Christmas thriller Who Killed Santa Claus? and Eve Fehilly is a member of the Lichfield Youth Theatre and National Youth Musical Theatre, and makes her official Players’ stage debut with And Then There Were None.”

The Christie classic follows the fortunes of ten unsuspecting house guests as they are lured to house party on a remote island.  A pleasant evening takes a sinister turn when the host fails to appear and instead a recorded message accuses each guest of murder.

As sinister secrets are shared, it’s not long before the guests start dying, but who is ultimately the killer and will anybody else survive?

Christie’s play introduces an eclectic season of thriller, comedy, powerful drama and musical entertainment from the Lichfield Players, which includes a collaborative venture in April 2010 with the professional Garrick Rep Company and 2008 National Finalists Amington Brass Band for the stage-version of the award-winning screenplay Brassed Off.

And Then There Were None runs at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre from September 30 to October 3.  Ticket price is £10 (concessions £9 and £6).  To book contact the Lichfield Garrick Box Office on 01543 412121 or visit www.lichfieldgarrick.com.
