Tucson, Arizona—PCC theatre arts presents the suspense-filled and cleverly written murder-mystery by Agatha Christie—THE MOUSETRAP. Directed by Mickey Nugent in the intimate space of the Black Box Theatre, where the audience feels every much as stuck inside Monkswell Manor as the actors.
Eight strangers are trapped together while a blizzard rages outside. One of them turns up dead. Who among them is the murderer and who will be the next victim? Christie’s thoroughly entertaining story is a classic who-dunnit with an ingenious plot that engages the audience with plenty of twists to keep them guessing from start to satisfying finish. The Mousetrap had its world premiere at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham in 1952 and is currently the longest running play in the world. The killer’s identity is divulged near the end of the play, and by tradition, cast, crew and audience have been sworn to secrecy to preserve the pleasure of solving the crime for future theatre-goers.
“Who doesn’t like a good old-fashioned murder-mystery?” asks director Nugent. “In a world of high-tech special effects, what is brilliant about THE MOUSETRAP is simply Christie’s astute and imaginative writing ability—impeccably crisp with all the British properness and sensibilities, yet extraordinarily entertaining”. A lavish set overshadows the small space with enough doors to keep you guessing who is coming and who is going. Currently celebrating 60th year in London, The Mousetrap still keeps the audience gripping the edge of their seats.
The Pima Community College Center for the Arts is located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson (just west of downtown). For ticket information contact the box office at 206-6986 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
