The Mousetrap

Metropolis Performing Arts Centre
111 West Campbell Street Arlington Heights

The longest-running play in London's West End and one of the best mysteries ever written for the stage. A group of strangers become stranded in an English country boarding house, cut off by a sudden snow storm. They soon discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, a young architect, a retired Army major, a strange foreigner, an aloof traveller from abroad, and a disapproving guest. A policeman arrives at the house and begins to uncover the rationale of the murderer's pattern, questioning the background of everyone present. As information is revealed, legendary mystery writer Agatha Christie keeps you guessing until her signature final twist.

"...Director Joe Lehman and his cast largely avoid the play's potential pitfalls. A few characters function solely as red herrings to throw you off the scent of the killer, so it's necessary to shape them into relatable characters. Some at Metropolis work better than others, but overall the cast sells the mystery."
