Theatre troupe Open Space will stage two consecutive shows of their theatre production titled ‘And Then There Were None’, on May 30 at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in the capital. The show will be staged at 4:30 pm, while the next show will be staged at 7:30 pm at the same venue.
The play has been adapted from Agatha Christie’s best-selling crime novel of the same name. The play is translated and directed by M Arifur Rahman.
The classic murder mystery goes as seven guests, a newly hired personal secretary, and two staff, are gathered for a weekend on an isolated island by the hosts, the Owens, who are delayed. At dinner, a record is played and the host’s message alleges that all the people present are guilty of murder. They discover that none of them actually know the Owens, and Justice Wargrave concludes that the name ‘UN Owen’ is a play on the word ‘Unknown’.
