The Mouse Trap

A snowstorm traps a group of strangers with an unknown killer!

Branch County Community Theatre is presenting Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap on October 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. The Mousetrap is currently celebrating its 63rd year in London as a record breaking run during which over 25,000 performances have been given making it the longest running stage production in history.
 
The play began life as a short radio play broadcast on 30 May 1947 called Three Blind Mice in honor of Queen Mary, the consort of King George V. The play had its origins in the real-life case of the death of a boy, Dennis O'Neill, who died while in the foster care of a farmer and his wife in 1945.
 
In this murder/mystery a group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a magistrate who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis.
