"Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one
they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this
superlative mystery, statuettes of little soldier boys on the
mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the
floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a
diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten
"soldiers" met their death until there were none. Eight guests who
have never met each other, or their apparently absent host and
hostess are lured to the island and, along with the house servants,
marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each one of having gotten away
with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned..."
The cast list is as follows, in order of appearance:
Rogers - Manservant, recently arrived at
Soldier Island with his wife to run the house.
Mrs Rogers - Worried-looking nervous
housekeeper. Smaller role. Age for these two unimportant; they must
look right as a couple.
Narracott - Cameo role, would love this to be
played with a broad Devon accent. Older gentleman.
Vera Claythorne - Secretary to the Owens.
Efficient and attractive, ideally late 20's to early 30's.
Philip Lombard - Captain. Adventurous looking,
has lived life to the full. Age 35-45 (ish).
Anthony Marston - Young rich man, out to have fun. Under 30.
William Blore - Character role, this man is not
all he sets out to be. Requires an actor who is able to "switch
roles". Age unimportant, but would prefer over 40.
General Mackenzie - A small role for an older
gentleman. He should be upright and military looking.
Emily Brent - Waspish, god-fearing spinster,
age 60 plus. Lovely character role.
Sir Lawrence Walgrave - The judge and central
character. This actor will need strong stage presence. A fantastic
role for a mature actor.
Doctor Armstrong - Surgeon turned researcher,
with a difficult past. Age unimportant, but would prefer 40
Rehearsals will start on Monday 3rd
