Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None to Open on London's West End in October
The world's bestselling novelist (2 billion books sold), Agatha Christie is also the author of the longest running stage play in history, The Moustrap, which has been playing in London for 53 years. Next fall an updated stage production of her book, And Then There Were None, will debut. The play will be rewritten and based on the original novel, not later plays or screen versions The plot revolves around ten strangers who are lured to an island estate and are then killed off one by one.
Christie’s grandson (and chairman of Agatha Christie Ltd), Mathew Prichard, said: “If Agatha Christie is to be as popular in the 21st century as she was in the 20th, we have to be open-minded about interpreting stories in modern ways (much as Shakespeare is reinvented for successive generations).”
