Bradley presents
'None' mystery
PUTNAM — Do you remember the children’s rhyme about 10 little soldiers who died one by one? The Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut at the Bradley Playhouse brings it to life when it presents Agatha Christie’s masterful mystery "And Then There Were None." The show opens Oct. 9 and runs for three weekends.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 and 24 and at 2 p.m. Oct. 11, 18 and 25. Tickets are $19 for adults and $15 for seniors and students. 860-928-7887.
In "And Then There Were None," 10 strangers are lured by an unknown host to a manor house on an isolated island. It turns out they all have something to hide, and one by one they are tried without judge or jury. One by one, they end up dead. Who is killing them?
The TNECT production of And Then There Were None is directed by Jonathan Loux, who is assisted by Jim Weigel. The actors who bring the doomed guests to life include Ariel Lewis as Vera Claythorne, Vincent Chaisson as Philip Lombard and John Fulco as Sir Lawrence Wargrave. Keith Deteau appears as William Blore, Bonnie Theriault is Dr. Elizabeth Armstrong and Dennis Leroux plays General Mackenzie. Emily Brent is played by Cheryl Gaudreault, and Trevor May is Anthony Marston. The guests are served by Rogers played by Marc Cerrone, Mrs. Rogers who is Laura Wittenberg and Fred Narracott played by Bernard Galvin. 
All seats are reserved. Reservations may be made with a major credit card online at or by calling 860-928-7887. 
 And Then There Were None (previously known as Ten Little Indians) was based on a 1939 book by Agatha Christie and this play was considered her best piece of “craftsmanship”. It was first presented at St. James Theatre in London in 1943 and on Broadway in 1944. Other well- known Agatha Christie plays include The Mousetrap and Witness for the Prosecution, both of which were presented on the Bradley stage.
