One of the very best thrillers written by the Queen of Suspense, Agatha Christie, comes to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival stage for its 40th anniversary season. See Charlie Fee’s stylish take on the theatrical version of Christie’s novel “And Then There Were None.” Ten strangers arrive on a private island at the request of an eccentric, and absent, millionaire for an intriguing weekend. It’s all well and good until they learn the only thing they have in common is that each has a secret past they’re unwilling to admit. Now they are marked for murder. The production features an alternate ending that will chill you to the bone.
