Plot Summary: 

On the English countryside in the 1950s, a group of strangers is stranded at Monkswell Manor, a boarding house, during a snowstorm. One is murdered.  A policeman investigates each person’s background.  The ensemble grapples with the mystery, until the murderer’s identity is revealed at the end of the play.  Agatha Christie’s beloved play, The Mousetrap, has run continuously in London for over 65 years, over 25,000 performances.  It is the longest, continuously running play in modern history.

 

Characters:

• Mollie Ralston (mid 20s-30s): Inherited the manor house from her deceased aunt, and is converting it into a boarding house, with her husband, Giles. They have been married only one year. Mollie strives to make the boarding house and the marriage successful. 

• Giles Ralston (mid 20s-30s): Mollie’s determined partner in marriage and business. Driven to succeed and protective of Mollie.

• Christopher Wren (mid 20s-30s): An eccentric, mysterious young man, who has sought refuge in the boarding house. 

• Mrs. Boyle (50s-60s): An arrogant, dissatisfied woman who imposes her will on all around her.

• Major Metcalf (50s-60s): Military in bearing and demeanor.  Agile and observant.  Helpful to all. 

• Miss Casewell (mid 20s-30s): A confident, independent young woman on a mysterious mission.

• Mr. Paravicini (30s-40s): Roguish and charming, he arrives at the boarding house after his car overturns in a snowdrift.  Appears to be hiding his true background and disguising his appearance.

• Detective Sergeant Trotter (mid 20s-30s): A professional, methodical young detective. He conducts a thorough investigation to reveal the identity of the murderer.
