About the event

“A still-marvelous whodunit… fiendishly fabulous… The Mousetrap deserves to make a killing.” – Chicago Sun-Times

Murder mystery stories never go out of style. With the resurgence of the whodunit in popular culture, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is the ideal addition to the LTAC theatrical season. After a local woman is murdered, the guests and staff at Monkswell Manor find themselves stranded during a snowstorm. It soon becomes clear that the killer is among them, and the seven strangers grow increasingly suspicious of one another. A police detective, arriving on skis, interrogates the suspects: the newlyweds running 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. When a second murder takes place, tensions and fears escalate. This record-breaking murder mystery features a brilliant surprise finish from Dame Agatha Christie, the foremost mystery writer of her time.
