THEATRE: AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
In honour of the Agatha Christie Theatre Company’s 10th anniversary, the author’s stage adaptation of her own novel And Then There Were None comes to Edinburgh’s King’s Theatre tonight. Starring some well known British TV faces - from Paul Nicholas to Deborah Grant - the story follows a group of 10 strangers lured to a remote island under false pretences and slowly killed off one by one. In true Agatha Christie style, everyone is a suspect until proven innocent or found dead.

FILM: MAKE MORE NOISE! SUFFRAGETTES IN SILENT FILM
After the release of new film Suffragette earlier this month, Edinburgh’s Filmhouse are showing a selection of silent films from the BFI National Archive showing how real suffragettes were portrayed on the big screen while campaigning for the vote. A combination of newsreels, documentaries and comedy films show the suffragettes in both good and bad lights, but their determination and anarchic spirit is infectious and inspiring even a century later.
