Agatha Christie’s, The Mousetrap, is a murder mystery farce that takes place entirely in the living space of the living space of Monkswell Manor, the home of Giles and Mollie Ralston. The show opens on a snowy night in Monkswell Manor where a radio announcement can be heard reporting the murder of Mrs. Lyon in London. The murder takes place the same evening that Mollie and Giles had intended to open the doors for the first time to their bed and breakfast. The rest of the show spirals out of control as characters die, secrets are exposed, and accusations are made left and right. Who is the killer? What is his affiliation to Monkswell manor? Why is everyone acting so strange? Find out in E-52 presents: The Mousetrap.
