The creative team also includes lighting designer Chris Davey and sound designer and composer Elizabeth Purnell. Casting is by Ellie Collyer-Bristow CDG, the assistant director will be Victoria Gartner, fight direction is by Renny Krupinski and movement direction by Ayse Tashkiran.
And Then There Were None is produced by Fiery Angel, Royal and Derngate, Northampton and ROYO.
