About the play
Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, with a shadowy past are invited to an isolated island off the coast of Devon by the mysterious hosts Mr. and Mrs. U.N. Owen, whom none of the ten has ever actually met. Each of the guests are accused of hiding a guilty secret. As their pasts catch up with them, who will survive and how does their fate relate to a nursery rhyme hanging on the wall?

Fred Narracott: small role of the boatman who delivers the guests to the island.
Mrs Ethel Rogers: the cook/housekeeper and Thomas Rogers’ wife. Highly nervous character, described as pale and walking in mortal fear. (age flexible)
Thomas Rogers: the butler and Ethel Rogers’ husband. Seems to dominate his wife. (age flexible)
Vera Claythorne: A former governess who comes to the Island to serve as a secretary to Mrs. Owen. She is efficient and resourceful young woman (20s/30s)
Philip Lombard: Adventurer and soldier of fortune who is a confident and resourceful man. Considers himself to be a ‘ladies man.’ (30s/40s)
General MacKenzie: A guilt-ridden former General who grieves for the loss of his wife. (60s+)
Anthony James Marston: An athletic and handsome young man. Tony Marston likes to drive recklessly and seems to lack a conscience. (20s/30s)
Emily Brent: A religious woman, who appears convinced of her own righteousness. She is stern and does not like Vera, who she believes epitomises the declining morals of the younger generation. (50s+)
William Blore: A former police inspector. He likes to take the initiative and often acts boldly. However, this trait sometimes verges on the foolhardiness (age flexible.)
Mr Justice Wargrave: a retired judge, known as a ‘hanging judge’ for liberally awarding the death penalty in murder cases. Highly intelligent with a commanding personality. (50s+)
Dr Edward Armstrong: a Harley Street doctor who is a recovering alcoholic (age flexible.)
