Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Soldier Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear. On the island they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they are killed according to macabre words of the children’s nursery rhyme from which the title is taken.
The play by renowned mystery author and playwright, Agatha Christie, is sure to be a dark, funny, and downright entertaining night at the theatre.

"The Importance of Being Earnest"

Oscar Wilde’s THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Two young gentlemen living in 1890s England use the same pseudonym ("Ernest") on the sly. This works wonderfully until they both fall in love with women using that name, which leads to a comedy of mistaken identities in which it becomes clear there are both too many and too few Ernests earnestly courting. Richmond Community Theatre is thrilled to present what is probably the wittiest comedy in the English language.
