Agatha Christie’s – And Then There Were None

“A perfect combination of thriller and detective story, this much-copied plot is Christie’s greatest technical achievement.” – John Curran, The Guardian

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end.

You Can’t Beat the House

“I’ve had trouble breaking into a house before but this is the first time I’ve had problems breaking OUT again!” So moans Merle to his partner, Howie. These two minor-league burglars have really met their match this time, it seems. They decided on a house only to find, after managing to get into the place, that it’s up for sale and before they can leave, Conrad and Glenda, prospective buyers, show up. Merle figures they have two choices – either pretend to be real estate agents or beat it, making the buyers suspect them and call in the police. Merle begins to show the house while Howie ducks out to get the car. Now the REAL real estate agent shows up and Merle has to juggle the couple and the agent. Finally, as Merle gets rid of the her and is about to show the door to Conrad and Glenda, Howie arrives with the news that their car has been towed away. Suddenly a cop shows up, saying the police are looking for two suspicious characters in the neighborhood. Next in the parade of oddball characters is Conrad’s secretary, then Glenda’s mother, then her medium, Madame Zenobia. Oh, yeah! The place, it turns out, is haunted! This screwball comedy is one wisecrack after another and proves once again that “You Can’t Beat the House.”

Three TaII Women

Winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize. This engaging examination of the life of one woman is one of the biggest hits to grace the stage.

“One of America’s finest playwrights.  AIbee offers a new play so good it can only exist on the stage. A perfect illustration of why theater is an indispensable art.” —NY Times.

“A dazzler…Worthy of mention in the same breath as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and A Delicate Balance. Three TaII Women blazes as bright as a midsummer day. Electrifying and heartrending, each of Albee’s women is memorable…” —Wall Street Journal.
