The Mousetrap

Agatha Christie

Directed by
Rob Pherson

Running weekends February 12th through March 6th

A group of strangers are stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly-married couple, a spinster with a curious background, and architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired army major, a strange little man and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman who no sooner arrives, than the jurist is killed. Two down and one to go. To get to the rational of the murder's patter, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another Agatha Christie switch finish.

Presented weekends April 9th through May 1st

Willum, an architect and war veteran, learns that the man who saved his life during the war is coming to visit him and his girlfriend. Little does he realize that his house guest is overwhelmingly bizarre, and has no immediate plans on leaving. And when they attempt to have a dinner party for clients, hilarious insanity ensues!

This compelling drama about Main Street vs. Wall Street provides an inside perspective on whether corporate raiders are creatures from the Black Lagoon of capitalism or their ultimate realists who save business from itself. 1989 Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off Broadway Play. "Funny, serious, suspenseful, involving, disturbing, and above all expertly crafted. . . .Stylized over and undertones give it both epic grandeur and intimate titillation."-- N.Y. Magazine.

"Very fine." -- N.Y. Daily news.

"It held me, amused me, charmed me" -- N.Y. Post.

Presented weekends November 12th through December 4th

Critics had a hard time figuring out which of these four comedies about the superiority of women is the funniest. The first introduces a young man who starts to seduce a lady, only to have the tables turned on him. The second involves a married couple who can't figure out whose turn it is to commence love making. The third opens in a girl's apartment at 4 AM when her fiancé arrives to tell her he is a nervous wreck and can't go through with the wedding. She gently leads the way back to the wedding route. In the last, a couple who have fought for over thirty years try to save their son's marriage by confessing their own failings.
