NU presents ‘Ten Little Indians’

First, there were 10 – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past that they’re each unwilling to reveal, a past that has, unbeknownst to them, sentenced each of them to death. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none … and only the dead are above suspicion.

The play was first written in the form of a novel by Agatha Christie. After she adapted it for the stage, it enjoyed successful runs in both England and America and was twice adapted for film. Critics praise the play’s intricate plotting and innovative technique, noting that in it, Christie adds new twists to the mystery genre. Most scholars, along with her devoted fans, consider “Ten Little Indians” to be one of the best mystery novels ever written.

Performances will be held tonight and Friday, as well as May 25-27, at 7 p.m. (on the last day a matinee will be performed at 2 p.m.). Open seating tickets are $8 for students/seniors and $10 for adults and may be purchased at the door on a first-come, first- served basis or reserved by calling 273-4431, ext. 301; call 273-4431, ext. 584, for more information.
