The game is afoot once again for master detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson, with the added perk of steampunk-style design on display in the innovative sets and costumes. As for the story itself, the intrepid investigating duo are drawn into a case of blackmail, with a fetching opera singer at its center. And after many a diabolical twist and even a romantic turn, it all leads to a long-awaited final showdown with Holmes' arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty. Adapted by Steven Dietz in 2006, this entertaining adventure pulls from an 1899 play by William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America. The Coronado Playhouse production plays on the steampunk aesthetic, which references Victorian England and its antiquated mechanics in new art and design. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
The Mousetrap opened in London in 1952 and never closed
!The audience is sworn to secrecy about the ending of “the world’s longest running play!”
Who did it? Everyone is a suspect!
Agatha Christie’s most famous murder mystery focuses on a group of strangers, one of whom is a murderer, staying at Monkswell Manor, a recently-opened boarding house.
The peculiar group of suspects, stranded during a snowstorm, include: Mollie and Giles Ralston (Renee Gandola & Rick Chatham), the newly-married couple who run the boarding house; Miss Casewell (Lizette Kent), an abrasive young woman from “abroad” with a mysterious background; Christopher Wren (Marcus Allen Correia), a likable but deranged young architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; Major Metcalf (Richard Herring), an affable retired military man; Mr. Paravicini (Martin M. White), a flamboyant Frenchman who claims that his car has overturned in a snowdrift; and Mrs. Boyle (Eva Kvass) , a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone.
Into their midst, skis Detective Sergeant Trotter (Terence J. Burke) to question all present since “Monkswell Manor” was written an a note attached to a dead body found in London. As the policeman probes the background of everyone present, another murder occurs and he uncovers lies and deceptions as he discovers that everyone has hidden secrets. Even the newlyweds begin to suspect one another of murder.
The Mousetrap, which opened at the Ambassador Theatre in London in November 1952 and never closed, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2002 and is still going strong.
