This story of two families linked by an act of violence is marked by Shepard’s measured humor, heart, and steady eye in examining humanity’s potential for both compassion and destruction. This play’s first off-Broadway production in 1985 won both the Drama Desk Award and the New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play and is generally considered to be among Shepard’s greatest works, and our starry cast of leading local talent will provide a showcase of tour-de- force performances.

Ten suspicious and malicious souls are alone on an island when murder ensues in Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. Considered by many to be Christie’s masterpiece, she described it as her most difficult mystery to write. It was the ultimate stylish, witty, and nerve-wracking whodunit with a built-in puzzle to keep you guessing, and through the course of its run, became the best-selling show in Actors Theatre history!
