- TAUNTON Thespians: And Then There Were None Taunton Thespians are proud to present Agatha Christie’s classic mystery: And Then There Were None. Ten strangers come together on an isolated Devon island. Why have they been brought together? And by who? To quote the author “It was clear, straightforward, baffling, and yet had a perfectly reasonable explanation.”

Although Black Coffee was her first, this is the play that Agatha Christie felt set her on the path of being a playwright.

Even if you know the plot (and it’s hard not to, with several movie and TV adaptations over the years) you’ll still get caught up in the suspense as the story builds to its climax.

It takes place at 7.30pm each evening from November 7-11) and 2.30pm Saturday matinee.

Tickets can be bought online at or call the box office on 01823 283244.
