Coaster Theater presents: 'The Mousetrap'
Cannon Beach
March 3 – April 15, 2017

A group of strangers have gathered in a country manor during a treacherous snowstorm. With no possibility of reaching the outside world, they discover a murder and find themselves, one by one, under suspicion. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Other suspects include a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer’s pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish! Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.

Their successes in the form of leading roles, trysts with the King and eventually shares in the company could – and do – disappear at any time
