If you're a fan of the classic whodunit, look no further than Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap" playing at Vernon's Powerhouse Theatre. Directed by Diane Llewelyn-Jones, this production is a masterclass in suspense, intrigue, and murder.
Set in a remote countryside guesthouse, seven strangers find themselves snowed in when news spreads of a murder in London. As the guests begin to suspect that a killer is in their midst, they each reveal their own sordid pasts in an attempt to clear their names. But who is the murderer? And who will be their next victim?
The performances from the cast were strong, with each actor fully embodying their character and keeping the audience on the edge of their seat with their suspicions and secrets.
The set design was also impressive, with a detailed and authentic-looking guesthouse that added to the overall atmosphere of the play.
But what really sets "The Mousetrap" apart is its clever script and intricate plot twists. Even if you think you've figured out the killer's identity, the play has a way of keeping you guessing until the very end. It's no wonder that the Daily Telegraph has called it "the cleverest murder mystery of the British Theatre."
If you're looking for a night of suspenseful theatre, "The Mousetrap" at the Powerhouse Theatre is not to be missed. With performances running until March 4th, there's still time to catch this classic whodunit in action.
