3. And Then There Were None by No Drama Theatre
If what you are looking for this weekend is a good theatre evening, I’m happy to invite you to the No Drama Theatre’s Agatha Christie’s most celebrated work And Then There Were None.
Tomorrow will be the last day to enjoy this beautiful piece, so rush and buy your tickets and be prepared to enjoy this magical play about ten strangers who receive a mysterious invite to a dinner party on an isolated island.
