Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None will be presented at Royal and Derngate in Northampton ahead of a UK tour.

Directed by Lucy Bailey and designed by Mike Britton with lighting design by Chris Davey, the thriller follows a group of strangers brought to a mansion off the coast of Devon – where, naturally, a series of murders begins to occur. It was broadcast on the BBC a few years ago with an all-star cast.

Bailey commented: "Set in 1939, this is Agatha Christie's most popular novel but also one of her darkest, reflecting the impending sense of doom of a world on the brink of war. Its depiction of a group of strangers stranded in a crisis of their own making feels very in tune with today's climate emergency."

The show will tour after its September premiere in Northampton (where it plays from 3 September to 11 September), with dates, cast and further creative team to be revealed.

Tickets go on sale later this month.
