Vera Claythorne (F -
Mid 20s) – She is strong but occasionally succumbs to her nerves and is
particularly affected by the poem about the “Ten Little Soldiers.” She
is accused of causing the death of a boy she cared for as a nanny.
Philip Lombard (M
or F - Late 20s to Early 30s) – A mysterious, confident, adventurer,
Lombard is bolder and wittier than most of the other characters and has
a strong connection with Vera, as well, which harms and helps at the
end. Lombard abandoned 21 people in the jungle to save his own life.
Blore - (M - 40+) – A
former police inspector coming to the island undercover but is quickly
discovered, which harms a supposed innocence in the eyes of the others.
Blore makes mistakes throughout the play and believes guilt of perhaps
the wrong people. Blore gave misleading testimony in court causing an
innocent man to die in prison.
Wargrave - (M or F -
60+) – An acting leader of the group, organizing a plan of attack and
getting as much info about the circumstances as can be had. Wargrave
has suspicions about who the murderer may be but refrains from
revealing them when possible. As a Judge, Wargrave takes charge but
struggles with a dark past and tendencies, having given the death
penalty to a defendant whom a trial jury believed to be innocent.
Dr. Armstrong - (M or F
45+) – A target for suspicion right off the bat because of extensive
medical knowledge. Armstrong is a timid recovering alcoholic who
operated on a patient while intoxicated, causing her death. Although
professionally successful, the doctor can be incredibly gullible.
Emily Brent - (F - 40+)
– One of the few characters that feels no guilt about the crimes that
she was accused of. She is unapologetically religious and believes the
others will have to face judgment for their sins. She turned out a
serving girl after finding out she was pregnant out of wedlock, and the
girl committed suicide.
Rogers - (M 35 - 55) –
As the butler, Rogers serves the rest of the group and even continues
his duties as long as he can. He is very concerned about his spouse
revealing information about their crime.
Mrs. Rogers - (M or F -
25-50) - Rogers’ Spouse. Frightened and in much distress. The Rogers'
are accused of allowing a woman in their care to die unaided.
Anthony Marston - (M -
20s) - A rich and spoiled young man. Marston likes to drive recklessly
and seems to lack a conscience. He killed two small children in a car
accident caused by his speeding, but shows no remorse.
General MacKenzie - (M
- 65+) - An older guest, MacKenzie is one of the first guests that
doesn’t become distraught when the deaths are out in the open. He gives
in and resigns himself to death early on and speaks of joining his dead
wife, whose lover died while under his command in WWI.
Fred Naracott - (M or F
- Any Age) - Island caretaker, brings food to the island, and
transports the guests to and from the mainland.
There Were None is a non-equity no-pay production.
