10/14/2011 show of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None put on at the Midland Community Theater.
Ten dinner guests show up on an island to find their host is not their to greet them. A record plays and accuses each of the dinner guests of murder. Come to find none of the guests has actually met their host and while all recognize the names of their supposed victims, all deny any wrongdoings. Ten soldier figurines sit on a vanity in the common room; after the first guest chokes to death, they discover one of them has broken and notice the poem that sits above the remaining soliders.
Ten little Soldier boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.
