And Then There Were None

Synopsis:
Kevin Elyot has drawn exclusively from the original 1939 novel rather than the Christie's own 1943 stage version or subsequent screen versions. as part of a major initiative to re-popularise Christie for the 21st century, the piece is being updated with an eye to satisfying the expectations of younger audiences accustomed to more graphic horror on screen.

Notes:
Based on the book "and then there Were None" by Agatha Christie (original title "Ten Little Niggers"). Has original book ending which was changed by Christie when she Adapted it

Forty Winks

Forty Winks
as in his last play, Mouth to Mouth, elyot shows us the devastating impact of a rootless outsider on a bourgeois family. In this case the hero, Don, is a cosmopolitan drifter who has never got over his schoolboy love for the beautiful Diana. and in four ingeniously structured scenes we watch the quixotic Don invading the married Diana's fractious Hampstead home. all one can safely reveal is that none of the key characters - including Diana's boorish husband, gay brother-in-law and narcoleptic daughter - remain untouched by his presence. -Michael Billington, the Guardian.
