Play Synopsis:
Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

Character Breakdown  (Ages can be adjusted)

Thomas Rogers Male 40s – 50s The butler and caretaker of the house on Soldier Island. Along with his wife, he withheld an important medication from a former employer, which resulted in the employer’s death. Competent manservant, shifty, dishonest.
Mrs. Rogers Female 40s – 50s The house servant and wife of the butler. She is accused by the gramophone recording of taking part in the killing of her former boss. Worried, frightened and guilt-ridden woman.
Anthony Marston Male 22 – 35 A dangerous driver, accused of killing a young couple with his car. A good-looking playboy who has never wanted for anything.
Miss Emily Brent Female 45 – 65 A religious fundamentalist who believes she is morally superior to everyone else on the island. She is accused of killing a young girl by causing her to commit suicide after being kicked out of her house. Deeply religious, sanctimonious, middle aged spinster.
Vera Claythorne Female 20s-30s A former nursemaid who came to the island under the pretense of becoming Mrs. U.N. Owen’s secretary. She caused the drowning death of a young child, which resulted in losing the love of her life, Hugo. “Innocent,” ingenue type, she is surprisingly cunning. Young, self-assured, troubled by guilt.
Phillip Lombard Male 25 – 40s A soldier of fortune who is responsible for the deaths of an entire native African tribe. Leading man type; a mercenary who can wiggle out of a scrape. Adventurous, inappropriately witty.
Detective William Blore Male 30s – 50s A former detective with Scotland yard who committed perjury that resulted in locking up an innocent man.
Lawrence Wargrave
Male 50s – 60s A recently retired judge who is accused (via a gramophone recording) of having murdered Edward Seton, a man over whose trial he presided. Calm, intelligent, often cold. Authoritative, hard, a trifle mysterious
Dr. Edward Armstrong Male 35+ A surgeon who is accused of having killed a patient after performing an operation on her while intoxicated.
General MacKenzie Male 60+ A surprisingly sentimental military man. Soldierly, overly guilt-ridden, almost welcoming death. A retired World War I general who is accused of sending a man with whom his wife was having an affair, into battle so that he would be killed.
Fred Narracott Male 20s – 40s A captain of the boat that ferries all the guests over to Soldier Island. A walk-on role. Weather worn, gruff, brings supplies and guests from the mainland to the island.
