There were 10 main characters, with a wicked past, to begin with. They are all invited to go to Indian
Island by a host named “U.N. Owen”. As soon as they get on the island they realize that U.N. Owen isn’t
there. In the first day, two people have already died, and the remaining eight characters soon realize that it
CAN’T be a coincidence. They know that their deaths will be coming soon according to a nursery rhyme found
in each room.
“Ten little Indians boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight little Indian boys travelling in Devon;
One said he’d stay there and then there were seven.
Seven little Indians boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
Six little Indian boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five little Indian boys going in for law;
One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three little Indian boys walking in the Zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun
One got frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone;
He went and hanged himself and there were none.”
