Guys and Dolls: Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

And Then There Were None: Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are summoned to a remote island off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N. Owen. What the guests do have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and the tension escalates as the survivors realize the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again and again.
