About the play
The play description is provided by publisher Samuel French Ltd.
“Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. Statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger.
“A nursery rhyme tells how each of the 10 ‘soldiers’ met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead — poisoned. One down and nine to go!”
