Southampton University Players, better known today as SUP Theatre Company, is bringing the classic Agatha Christie novel AND THEN THERE WERE NONE to the stage at NST Campus (Nuffield Southampton Theatres) in January.
The SUP Theatre Company (SUP), founded in 1965 as a staff club, is currently rehearsing its next production: a thrilling new version of Agatha Christie’s mystery AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, being performed at NST Campus from 23 -26 January 2019. Scroll to the bottom of the this blog for exclusive ticket offers.
Described as a masterpiece of dramatic construction, the new production is a full-blooded adaption of the classic thriller by Christie, who is now acknowledged as the world’s bestselling author of all time. Using the author’s own text, the show returns to her original intentions: to drive home the suspicion, fear and paranoia of the situation, as tension among the 10 guests builds towards the play’s unforgettable climax.
Members of SUP include university staff, students and alumni together with people from across Hampshire, attracted by opportunities in acting, directing, writing, design, costume, lights, sound and more.
“We have always maintained close ties with the University, and still rehearse and perform on Highfield Campus,” says Gavin Costigan (University of Southampton Director of Public Policy), currently rehearsing the role of Lord Justice Wargrave, which marks his return to the stage after a long absence.
SUP’s 2018-19 season follows an enormously successful year that saw the group win Best Play at the Southern Region of the All England Theatre Festival and come within one point of progressing to the English final. Each year, SUP raises money for charity and performs at other venues and events, from Murder Mystery Dinners, to “Introduction to Acting” workshops for its members from Spring 2019. Membership is open to all, with no experience necessary.
