Murder! Entity performs Agatha Christie’s masterpiece
And Then There Were None at Pepper Theater
Munich (Germany) – On the occasion of Agatha Christie’s 120th birthday, Entity Theatre e.V. is performing Christie’s famous murder mystery And Then There Were None in English at Pepper Theater on 25-27 November and 9-11 December 2010.
Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None promises to deliver an evening of comedy and suspense. Ten strangers are invited by an unknown host to a remote island off the British coast. The host never appears; instead a murderer has found his way to the island. The ten soon find themselves locked in a fatal game in which, one by one, they are mysteriously murdered. Tensions rise and terror sets in as they race against the clock to discover the killer, all the while guarding their own deadly secrets.
“As an English-speaking theatre group we wanted to honour Agatha Christie on her 120th birthday by bringing And Then There Were None to the Munich stage”, says the director Jennifer Milkulla, “It is really one of her best and most gripping ‘whodunnits’.”
The performances will take place at 8pm, with a matinee on 27 November at 2pm, at
Pepper Theater, PEP Einkaufszentrum (entrance through Starbucks Coffee), Thomas-Dehler-Strasse 12, 81737 Munich (U 5 Neuperlach Zentrum). Tickets cost EUR 15 (students: EUR 10). For reservations, please call 0700 3684 8900 or send an email to
