Andrew Karthage: The Mousetrap

January 10, 2021

I recommend reading this longest-ever-running play, which opened in the 1950s and only closed in 2020 due to theater lockdowns related to COVID-19. All of the roles are fun and lively to read, and if you all read it cold, part of the fun will be figuring out which one of the plural “you” did it, while it may well be the singular YOU! If you enjoyed reading Christie’s novels as a child or adult, you’ll enjoy the conversations about her larger body of work that this play will provoke.
