Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None !!TOP!!



In terms of content, And Then There Were None is a carbon copy of its PC predecessor. There was no visible skimping that I could discern, leaving all cutscenes, voiceovers, and gameplay unchanged, right down to the multiple endings. Strictly on the basis of porting from one platform to another, then, very little has been lost in translation apart from the inferior graphics on a bigger screen. The point-and-click controls also function simply and intuitively, effectively switching the mouse for remote with the game none the worse for wear.

Wargrave describes how he plans to kill himself: he will loop an elastic cord through the gun, tying one end of the cord to his eyeglasses, and looping the other around the doorknob of an open door. He will then wrap a handkerchief around the handle of the gun and shoot himself in the head. His body will fall back as though laid there by Armstrong. The gun's recoil will send it to the doorknob and out into the hallway, detaching the cord and pulling the door closed. The cord will dangle innocuously from his glasses; the stray handkerchief should not arouse suspicion.Thus the police will find ten dead bodies and an unsolvable mystery on Soldier Island.


And Then There Were None is one of Agatha Christie's best-known mysteries. Writing for The Times Literary Supplement of 11 November 1939, Maurice Percy Ashley stated, "If her latest story has scarcely any detection in it there is no scarcity of murders." He continued, "There is a certain feeling of monotony inescapable in the regularity of the deaths which is better suited to a serialized newspaper story than a full-length novel. Yet there is an ingenious problem to solve in naming the murderer. It will be an extremely astute reader who guesses correctly." Many other reviews were as complimentary; in The New York Times Book Review of 25 February 1940, Isaac Anderson detailed the set-up of the plot up to the point where 'the voice' accuses the ten people of their past misdemeanors and then said, "When you read what happens after that you will not believe it, but you will keep on reading, and as one incredible event is followed by another even more incredible you will still keep on reading. The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery that Agatha Christie has ever written, and if any other writer has ever surpassed it for sheer puzzlement the name escapes our memory. We are referring, of course, to mysteries that have logical explanations, as this one has. It is a tall story, to be sure, but it could have happened."


Florida Repertory Theatre's production of Agatha Christie's AND THEN THERE WERE NONE tells the story of a group of strangers who all arrive on a mysterious island under the impression they have been called there by friends. They soon realize that each of them are accused of committing a terrible crime, for which they must face fatal consequences that follow the "Ten Little Soldier Boys" rhyme.The production, directed by Eleanor Holdridge, stars Michael Stewart Allen as Rogers, Jason Blackwater as Dr. Armstrong, Dana Brooke as Mrs. Rogers, Sam Crabtree as Fred Narracott, Ellyn Heald as Vera Claythorne, V Craig Heidenreich as General Mackenzie, William McNulty as William Blore, Sara Morsey as Emily Brent, Seth Robert Patterson as Anthony Marston, Peter Thomasson as Wargrave, and Sean-Michael Wilkinson as Philip Lombard. This is a stellar cast. Each one of them adds a unique personality to their characters, and they do a fantastic job of portraying their emotions as the plot unfolds. I particularly enjoyed watching the connection between Vera and Philip as it evolves through the show. I was captivated as all of the characters realized how the "Ten Little Soldier Boys" rhyme hanging above the mantelpiece (along with all of the soldier boy figurines themselves) fit into all of the events that were happening to their fellow guests. It kept you on the edge of your seat wondering who would be next, and how.


Agatha Christie wrote the original ending to this production in 1939, then rewrote it in 1943. Florida Rep is doing both, and it is a mystery as to which ending you will see when you attend the show. I saw it twice and got to see both endings, and it is so fascinating to see how things end in one versus the other. The 1939 ending is darker, but I really enjoyed the technicality that went into presenting that ending. It also gave the actors a challenging task, but they performed it wonderfully. I don't want to give anything away, but the actor who plays the murderer does a flawless job at showing their character's descent into insanity. It is a thoroughly enjoyable performance.In addition to Eleanor Holdridge as the Director, the creative team for this production includes Dennis Maulden as the Scenic Designer, Charlene Gross as the Costume Designer, Todd O. Wren as the Lighting Designer, Katie Lowe as the Sound Designer, Janine Wocha as the Stage Manager, and Brianna McVaugh as the Fight Choreographer. I was very impressed with all of the creative aspects of this production. The set was gorgeous, and the costumes were perfect for these characters. I took note that there were some costuming changes between the two different versions of the show as well, which I thought was really fascinating. The lighting and sound brought the setting to life in a huge way. This team did a fantastic job bringing this show to life on Florida Rep's stage.


In each of the bedrooms, a framed nursery rhyme, called the ''Ten Little Indians'' poem, is prominently displayed. ''Ten little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine. . . One little Indian boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.''


This is the epitome of the locked-room or country mansion mystery, even though the actual location is a whole island, cut off from the mainland by a storm. Ten unrelated strangers are invited to spend the weekend on this island just off the English coast. Once there, they realise that none of them know their unseen host, who has identified himself only as AN Owen. Using a prerecorded gramophone, Owen accuses each of his guests of past murders that the law was unable to punish, and promises to avenge the victims. 041b061a72
