When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

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.
