“Nice set! Great sound! Wonderful job!”
If you are invited to a stranger’s house on an island under the pretense of a lavish dinner party, it is probably best not to go. (Duh!) I have never read Agatha Christie’s mystery novel “And Then There Were None,” and besides that one Family Guy episode that parodied the plot, I have never seen the play. So, I had only a faint idea of what it was about.
From the moment the lights dim and the eerie gauze curtains are pulled back, there is no question that And Then There Were None is a melodramatic masterpiece full of mystery and suspense. Triad Stage, the professional theatre company located in downtown Greensboro, recently kicked off its 18th season with Agatha Christie’s best-selling murder mystery, And Then There Were None, and you do not want to miss it.
Agatha Christie’s works are a staple of the theater — many times community and dinner theater, acknowledges Preston Lane, Triad Stage artistic director and director of “And then There Were None.” So why begin Triad Stage’s 18th season — that’s right, it’s been 18 years — with a jewel from the queen of crime?
It is hard to overstate the enduring popularity of Agatha Christie and her classic 1940 mystery novel, “And Then There Were None.” With more than 100 million copies sold, “And Then There Were None” ranks with “Lord of the Rings,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “The Hobbit” and “Alice in Wonderland” as the only English-language novels to achieve that sales milestone.
Lights Up! host Wayne Leonard is joined by And Then There Were None director Preston Lane, dramaturg Sarah Hankins, and scenic designer Robin Vest. Segment begins at the 29:23 mark and ends at 44:54.
