Silver Spring Stage presents Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap, a suspenseful mystery of guests trapped in a small hotel and a detective's search for a killer before the guests are all murdered.
The Mousetrap is about a young couple, Mollie and Giles Ralston, who have started up a new hotel in the converted Monkswell Manor. They are snowed in together with guests Christopher Wren, Mrs Boyle, Major Metcalf, Miss Casewell and Mr. Paravicini. Detective Sergeant Trotter arrives on skis to inform the group that he believes a murderer is on his way to the hotel, following the death of Miss Maureen Lyon in London. When Mrs. Boyle is killed, they realize that the murderer is already there. Though suspicion falls first on one of the guests, it quickly emerges that the killer could be any one of the guests, or even the hosts themselves.
