COMO resident Ben Lowther is suiting up to play a self-centred aristocrat in the Agatha Christie mystery classic And Then There Were None.
Lowther said the tale told of 10 strangers, each with a secret in their past, brought together in an isolated location after responding to a mysterious invitation.
“The strangers begin dying one by one, leaving the audience wondering if they are being murdered and if so, why,” Lowther said.
“My character An- thony Marsdon is a man typical of the 1930s upper-class.
“He comes from old money, is disconnected from the other classes and lofty, and I think he gets what’s coming to him.”
Award-winning director Susan Vincent said she wanted to bring the play to the stage as part of the worldwide celebration marking 125 years since Agatha Christie’s birth.
“I have directed this play three times before and it was regarded by Agatha and critics as her best piece,” Vincent said.
And Then There Were None will show at the Garrick Theatre in Guildford this April.
