Your Theatre, Inc., the SouthCoast’s fully dedicated community theatre, rings down the curtain on its 69th (2015-2016) season with Agatha Christie’s 1943 superlative mystery-comedy “And Then There Were None” which features an ending preferred by the author but never before used in an American stage presentation and only seen once in Europe.
Performances will be held Thursdays to Saturdays May 5-7 and 12-14, at 8 p.m., and Sundays May 8 and 15 at 2:30 p.m. in the Your Theatre Performance Complex at St. Martin’s Church, 136 Rivet St. at County St., New Bedford. Free off-street parking is located at the theatre complex entrance on County St. For reservations, call 508-993-0772.
The play, one of Ms. Christie at her murderous best, tells of ten strangers lured by a mysterious host for a relaxing weekend on a remote island. Once they have arrived there is a suspicious death. The host accuses each person, via a recording, of having escaped justice for a past murder. Unable to leave the island the guests begin to share their darkest secrets until they fall, one by one. The ever dwindling party rushes to unmask the hidden killer in their midst. Who is the murderer? Who is next? This highly entertaining whodunit will keep any audience member guessing until the play ends.
Tickets: $15 general admission, $12 season subscribers, $13 for senior citizens, students, and military personnel. For more information call 508-993-0772, email info@yourtheatre. org, or visit www.yourtheatre.org
