The Stoneleigh-Burnham School Theater Department will present The Mousetrap, a murder mystery by Agatha Christie, February 19-21 in Emerson Hall. Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, February 19 and Saturday, February 20, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 21. The play is a free community event and open to the public.
In The Mousetrap, a woman has been viciously murdered in her home in the Paddington District of London. Scotland Yard detectives investigating the scene of the crime find a notebook with the address of a remote English manor house that Giles and Mollie Ralston have just opened as a guest house. Everything points to this being the scene where the murderer will strike again.
The guests arrive at Monkswell Manor during a blinding snowstorm and soon, all access to the house is cut off by high drifts and a downed telephone line. We hear the haunting tune of the old nursery rhyme, “Three Blind Mice,” the lights go out, and . . .
