THREE top theatre shows to see in Scotland this week, including Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and Shrek: The Musical

And Then There Were None

Based on the Agatha Christie novel And Then There Were None, widely regarded as her finest piece of work, the Agatha Christie Theatre Company celebrates its 10th anniversary with a week-long performance of the show.

In this gripping play, ten people are lured to a remote island – the only thing they have in common is a murderous past.

They find themselves being picked off one by one – no one knows who the killer is, or who will be next.

Monday 19 - Saturday 24 October, King’s Theatre, Glasgow

Shrek: the Musical

The green ogre is making his way to Edinburgh in an all-singing reincarnation.

Based on the DreamWorks animation, Shrek will face off against Lord Farquaad to save Princess Fiona from the tower.

Directed by Nigel Harman, who played Lord Farquaad in the West End version, and with lyrics from David Lindsay-Abaire, this award-winning show is fun for all the family.

Tuesday 20 October - Sunday 8 November (not Mondays), The Playhouse, Edinburgh

Ad-Lib Theatre Arts Presents: Little Shop Of Horrors

Comedy horror rock musical Little Shop Of Horrors is being performed by the Ad-Lib Theatre Arts.

Composed by Alan Menken and written by Howard Ashman, the play follows a hapless florist who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh.

Premiering on off-off-Broadway in 1982, the musical became a cult hit and includes several well known songs from the film, including Skid Row (Downtown).

Friday 23 - Sunday 25 October, Goodlyburn Theatre, Perth
