Bartholomew Players, Eynsham, are holding open auditions for Agatha Christie’s brilliant murder mystery “And Then There Were None” to be performed at Eynsham Village Hall, Eynsham, OX29 4QW and Directed by Denise Santilli. The production dates are May 15-18 2019. Rehearsals will take place in the evening on Wednesdays from January & also Mondays from March.

The open auditions will be held at Eynsham Village Hall on Sunday 21 October from 3.30pm - 6pm with recalls on Sunday 28 October from 3.30pm - 6pm.

This is a play with a large cast and we invite all actors to apply (especially male actors).

The parts (and playing age range) are:

  • Rogers (45-65): the dignified butler
  • Fred Narracot (45-70)manservant (very small part)
  • Philip Lombard (40-55): attractive, mysterious, with the touch of an adventurer about him

  • General MacKenzie (65-80): upright soldierly old man with a gentle, tired face
  • Sir Lawrence Wargrave (55-70): a recently retired judge
  • Dr Armstrong (45-65) : a gullible, slightly timid doctor
  • Vera Claythorne (35-50): a former Governess
  • Emily Brent (60-75)an old, ruthlessly religious woman
  • Ethel Rodgers (45-65): Rogers’ wife. A frail woman.

The Production:

Ten guilty strangers are trapped in a house on an island. One by one they are accused of murder: one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery play, statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantelpiece fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger.

A sample of the script will be sent in advance to all interested applicants to be read in the auditions. A fuller Plot Summary and full character analysis will also be made available.
