(Note: This play was presented under Agatha Christie's original title, which includes a racially offensive term. We have decided to refer to this production by its more commonly used title of And Then There Were None, and have amended this website entry accordingly.
The Progressive Players would like to make it clear that, whilst no offence was intended by the use of the original title for our 1979 production, we firmly believe that racism and prejudice of any sort have no place in society, and apologise for any offence we may have inadvertently given.)
