The Mousetrap
By Agatha Christie

September 18, 19, 24**, 25, 26, 27*, October 1**, 2, 3, 4*, 2015

The world’s longest running play! A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house; a spinster with a curious background; an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; a retired Army major; a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift; and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when someone is killed! Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer’s pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish!
Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.

The talented cast includes T. James Belich, David Bilbray, Myles Hughes, Claudia Laster, Laura Meier, Miles Para, Rich Pintello and Brad Trowbridge under the direction of JaMario Stills.
