About the show:
In this suspenseful drama, based on Agatha Christie's mystery tale, 10 strangers are summoned to a remote island. While they are waiting for the mysterious host to appear, a recording levels serious accusations at each of the guests, and soon they start being murdered, one by one. As the survivors try to keep their wits, they reach a disturbing conclusion: one of them must be the killer.
Rogers - (Male, age: 40's - 50's) A competent man-servant who is quick and deft but just a bit shifty.
Mrs. Rogers - (Female, age: 40's - 50's) Rogers's wife. At first, Ethel is opinionated and seems fine, but underneath Ethel is a frail woman.
Fred Narracott - (Male/female, age: 30's - 40's) This character is open to males and females. A delivery person that also provides ferry service to and from the Island.
Vera Claythorne - (Female, age: 20's - 30's) A former governess who comes to Indian Island purportedly to serve as a secretary to their absent hostess, Mrs. Owen. Vera is one of the most intelligent and capable characters in the play, but she also suffers from attacks of hysteria, feels guilty about her supposed crime, and reacts nervously to the uncanny events on the island.
Philip Lombard - (Male, age: 30's - 40's) A mysterious, confident, and resourceful man who seems to have been a mercenary soldier in Africa. Lombard is far bolder and more cunning than most of the other characters, traits that allow him to survive. He also has an interest in Vera.
Anthony Marston - (Male, age: 20's) A rich, athletic, handsome youth. Tony Marston likes to drive recklessly and seems to lack a conscience.
William Blore - (Male, age: 30's - 40's) A former police inspector. Blore is a large (or well-built) man whose experience often inspires others to look to him for advice. He acts boldly and frequently takes initiative, but he also makes frequent blunders.
General Mackenzie - (Male, age: 60's) The oldest guest. An upright soldierly old man with a gentle and tired face.
Emily Brent - (Female, age: 50's - 60's) An older, ruthlessly religious spinster who is disagreeable and suspicious.
Sir Lawrence Wargrave - (Male, age: 50's - 60's) A recently retired judge. Wargrave is a highly intelligent older man with a commanding personality. As the characters begin to realize that a murderer is hunting them, Wargrave's experience and air of authority make him a natural leader for the group.
Dr. Armstrong - (Male, age: 40's - 60's) A gullible, fussy and slightly timid doctor. Armstrong often draws the suspicion of the other guests because of his medical knowledge.
