And Then There Were None

“Playhouse director Kenneth Alan Taylor not only directs the production but also plays the part of the judge, Sir Lawrence Wargrave. This role was to have been played by Marius Goring, 75, who has dropped out for personal reasons.” – ‘Famous tale of murder comes to the Playhouse’, Nottingham Evening Post 29th August 1987 (page 30)

The role was taken over in the West End by John Fraser.

    Marius Goring was originally cast to play the rôle of Sir Lawrence Wargrave but had to withdraw for personal reasons at short notice just before the premiere in Nottingham. He was replaced on opening night by the play’s director, Kenneth Alan Taylor. The rôle was recast by John Fraser.
