And Then There Were None
This famous play by Agatha Christie has been widely renamed and our records have been redacted.
April 1957

Here is the Wigton Theatre Club’s production from April 1957. As you will note I have had to redact the title plus certain lines & phrases, as the play had a different name in those days to that which is acceptable today - “And Then There Were None”. Wigton Theatre Club’s website reflects the modern title. By the way, I cannot find a programme nor any photos of the prior 1957 production “Cure for Love” which was presumably performed in Jan/Feb/March? If anyone has a programme or images I am sure Wigton Theatre Club would be pleased to know.
