In THE MOUSETRAP 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 traveler 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.
THE MOUSETRAP runs January 31 – March 16. For more information visit MetropolisArts.com.
