The Mousetrap—A Murder Mystery By Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap will hit the stage at the Scott MacAulay Performing Arts Centre in Summerside on May 9, 10 and 11. The Mousetrap is the longest running play anywhere in the world, and has been seen by 10 million people in London alone since its opening in 1952. Not bad for a play that the author hoped might run for eight months or so. A snowstorm isolates a guest house in the English countryside, and traps the couple who own the house with six strangers. One stranger is murdered, and an intrepid police officer, who has arrived on skis, has to try to prevent the unknown murderer from claiming more victims. As the investigation continues, hidden connections among the guests are gradually revealed…but will the identity of the murderer be discovered before another victim has been claimed? The show is a whodunit that invites the audience to figure out both who will be the victims, and who will be revealed as the murderer. The Mousetrap plays with the conventions of the murder mystery in ways that keep the audience in suspense until the very last minute, when the murderer is exposed. Showtime is 7:30 pm.
