The theatre adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best-selling crime novel is coming to Brighton next month.

And Then There Were None is set to be performed at the Theatre Royal as part of a national tour in 2024.

The play features a star-studded cast headed by Holby City’s Bob Barrett as Doctor Armstrong and The Crown’s David Yelland as Judge Wargrave.

Bob said: “I wanted to do it because my mother was a big Agatha Christie fan, who even named her car 'Agatha'.

“She died when I was 12 and I worshipped her, so this felt like a nice thing to do for her.

“If you're going to do an Agatha Christie this is the one to do because it's the jewel in the crown.”
