As always, Halloween brings the Night of the Living Cup of Joe Powell.
And I'm also directing the spooky, thriller production of a world classic of mystery and mayhem for the Morristown Theatre Guild -- Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" - which runs Nov. 11-20th at Rose Center in Morristown. The show is her script, based on her novel, which is the number one best-selling mystery novel ever published.
10 people are stranded on an island estate off the coast of England, trapped there by a diabolical killer, and none is likely to survive. Adding to the madness - each of the 10 guests are themselves accused of murder. We are performing the show 'in the round' so that the audience will experience the show as if they are in the isolated estate themselves.
The show was last produced by the Guild in 1983 and was the first show I ever saw them do - here's a shot of the cast from that production, which includes Tim Smith, David Green, David Horton, Hillary Faith Gerson-Krohn, Rohead Rex, Rodney R Oswald and Linda Dietrich.
I will share one more thing about this show - as in the 1983 version, we too are tweaking the story so that the ending will be different depending on which night you see the show.
I do love a good mystery and this one is the mother of them all!
Tickets are on sale now via the Guild's website or call 423-586-9260 for more info.
