Theatre Guild brings you a great money saving opportunity. Go and
see Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap at the Village Playhouse,
a great deal at $15 a ticket. For those that have always wanted to
catch the longest running play of all times, now’s the time.
The play closed in Toronto last year, after running 25 years at the
Toronto Truck Theatre. It still plays – at the St. Martin’s
Theatre in London, England, where it has been playing since it first
opened in 1952!! Save the airfare.
Agatha Christie is perhaps the best known and most prolific mystery
writer of all time, producing over sixty novels and over a dozen plays.
Described as, “clearly written and masterfully surprising”,
what sets her apart from the rest of the genre is her enduring popularity.
Three of her plays have had outstanding success, Ten Little Indians,
Witness for the Prosecution and The Mousetrap. Mousetrap is based
on a radio sketch play that was written to commemorate the eightieth
birthday of Queen Mary, and the play has been wearing out actors,
furniture and theatrical records since it started. It is a “superbly
constructed mystery, irresistibly suspended from its very first moment”.
