Kicking off Little Town Player’s season is Agatha Christie’s murder mystery, The Mousetrap. Directed by Raymond Smith, the show takes place in Berkshire, England at the Monkswell Manor guesthouse. A group of guests cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that a murderer is among them. As the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts, the tensions build to a nerve-wracking twist ending with the reveal of the identity and motive of the killer. This show is the world's longest-running play, with 2022 being its 70th year of continuous performances in London. Little Town Players is thrilled to celebrate this milestone by producing the show this fall at our community theater.
