ULVERSTON Outsiders return to the stage with a deadly and ingenious dose of Agatha Christie.

Running at the Coronation Hall from Wednesday, May 8 until Saturday, May 11, And Then There Were None tells of eight strangers who are invited to Soldier Island by the elusive Mr and Mrs U N Owen.

On arrival, the guests are met by the mysterious butler and housekeeper, Mr and Mrs Rogers, with assurances that the hosts will be arriving the next day.

That evening, a seemingly disembodied voice accuses each of the ten strangers of a specific murder. Shortly afterwards, one guest chokes to death in front of everyone. The question is was it an accident or something more sinister?

In true Agatha Christie style, the bewildering events take a turn for the worst and as the hours tick by there's no help from the mainland and the death toll is rising. Soon, the survivors realise that each death is being orchestrated to match a mysterious rhyme that is framed above the mantelpiece.
