Theatre of the Winged Unicorn Inc.


The Mousetrap – May 2020

A guest house welcomes its very first guests during a snowstorm. News over the wireless tells of a murder many miles away in London. The guest house’s owners, young newlyweds Mollie and Giles Ralston, are stranded with their four eccentric guests – and a few unexpected visitors.  Before long, that distant murder edges disconcertingly close to home.

Agatha Christie’s play The Mousetrap is perhaps the best-known play ever to grace the West End. Running continuously since 1952, with over 25,000 performances, the play that was written for Queen Mary now finds its way to the Ceres stage. A cast of popular Unicorn favourites and new faces brings this most famous of plays to life.

And, like The Mousetrap’s audiences in its London home of St Martin’s Theatre, Ceres audiences will be asked not to reveal the killer to anyone outside the theatre!

Featuring Julie Fryman, Ross Larkin, Callum Padgett, Miriam Wood, Allister Cox, Jocelyn McKay, Ben Mitchell and Cameron Allen.  Produced by Elaine Mitchell and directed by Alard Pett.
