Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap has been enthralling audiences as the world’s longest running stage production at its London home for more than 55 years. This magical mystery makes a welcome return to the Theatre Royal Glasgow on Monday 15 September for one week only.
With eight guests snowed in to Monkswell Manor and a suspicious murder to solve, we have an exclusive sneaky peek at the potential suspects for this fantastic evening of intrigue. So, prepare to meet the guilty, or innocent, suspects and prepare for a night of unexpected twists!
MAJOR METCALF (Christopher Gilling): I knew something was afoot when I realised the telephone wasn’t working; I was stationed in Edinburgh at the time of the Longridge Farm Case - you should ask Mrs Boyle if she knows anything more about that one.
MOLLIE RALSTON (Helen Clapp): I inherited Monkswell Manor from my aunt, and rather than sell the beautiful house, I decided to turn it into a guest house. On a horrid, snowy night someone was killed – I didn’t hear anything; I was in the kitchen preparing vegetables with the wireless on. Maybe I would have been concentrating more if I hadn’t discovered that Giles had been lying about going to London earlier in the week. What else could he be lying about?
MR PARAVICINI (Michael Fenner): I was traveling out in the snow when my Rolls Royce broke down, the first place I came to was this charming guesthouse in the middle of nowhere – It was lucky they have space for me. Who am I and where have I come from? Not telling. I am a man of mystery…
SGT TROTTER (Luke Jenkins): I was called to Monkswell Manor as there was a recent murder in London seems to be connected to this house and the events which happened at nearby Longridge Farm some time ago. Everyone was alone when the murder was committed tonight which means that everyone is a suspect in this case, even me…
Now you've met them, do you think you know whodunnit? Are you sure?
