The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie and Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward
Directed by Karen Allen
(open to actors 12-adult)
These two shows will be performed in repertory over two weekends.
“It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”
The Mousetrap: A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a blizzard, and one of them is a murderer. When there is nowhere to run, everyone is a suspect. Agatha Christie’s most famous play opened in London’s West End in 1952 and has not closed.
Blithe Spirit: Inviting the local medium over for a little séance seems like such a good idea until a cynical novelist accidently summons the ghost of his first wife. This satirical farce is considered by many to be Noel Coward’s stylistic masterpiece.
