On invitation from, “Mr. Owen,” eleven strangers gather to spend the weekend on isolated Soldier Island. At their first gathering, each individual is publicly accused of murder. As the guests begin dying one by one, all in a manner corresponding to a children’s nursery rhyme, the race is on to find the killer and escape. This Agatha Christie murder mystery is sure to keep you on your toes from start to finish. Who will live past their holiday in the house on Soldier Island?
English accents are preferred, so give it a shot and we can work on it. The show runs March 17-26 at 7:30 with 2:00 matinees on Sundays.
