Windsor, N.J. - Prepare for a chilling tale filled with twists,
turns and sheer mayhem. The Yardley Players presents "And
Then There Were None," based on the Agatha Christie
classic "Ten Little Indians," at Mercer County Community
College's Kelsey Theatre on Fridays, Oct. 7 and 14 at 8 p.m.;
Saturdays, Oct. 8 and 15 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, Oct. 9 and
16 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West

as one of the finest and best selling thrillers ever written,
the play reveals the psychology of a criminal mind at work
and the unsuspecting visitors who are caught in his web. The
plot revolves around ten seemingly unrelated strangers, but
all have past misdeeds that have gone unpunished. Lured to
a private island, the guests quickly surmise that their pleasant
weekend outing has a far more sinister purpose. Themes of
hypocrisy, guilt and justice in an unjust world are explored
as characters' past indiscretions come back to haunt them.
"And Then There Were None" has been performed on
stages around the world for more than 60 years, and has been
adapted into several plays, films, and a video game.
