The Mousetrap

Welcome to Monkswell Manor, a recently converted guesthouse run by a young couple, Mollie and Giles Ralston. After checking in their first guests, things go very wrong; phone lines go dead, snow mounds up around the Manor, and they are trapped in a house with a murderer. In Mollie’s words, “That’s what happens in a nightmare. You’re somewhere in the middle of friends and then you suddenly look at their faces and they’re not your friends any longer...Perhaps you can’t trust anybody—perhaps everybody’s a stranger”. The Mousetrap is a classic theatrical whodunit written by the greatest mystery writer of all time, Agatha Christie.

The School for Scandal

The School for Scandal is an English satire that makes fun of the eccentric aristocratic class and is ridiculous lifestyle and gossiping culture. Irish-born playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan's aptly named characters like Lady Sneerwell, Sir Joseph Surface, Lady Candour, and Sir Benjamin Backbite have amused theater audiences for more than two centuries. It is still considered by many to be the best comedy of manners.

BY RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN

Mrs. Verjuice/Careless - Amanda Sayers
Maid/Trip - Jane Schmid
Joseph Surface - Kyle Burch

And The Winner Is...

Mitch Albom delivers an offbeat comedy that skewers Hollywood egos and the movie business. Tyler Johnes, a self-absorbed actor who has finally been nominated for an Oscar, drops dead of a heart attack the night before the awards ceremony. He winds up in a peculiar sort of purgatory - an Irish pub that doesn't serve alcohol. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins, he bargains with heaven's gatekeeper, the Irish bartender. What follows is a very funny take on the afterlife and judgment day.

BY MITCH ALBOM

Noises Off

Called “the funniest farce ever written” by the New York Post, Michael Frayn’s uproarious play-within-a-play follows the on- and off-stage antics of the members of a mediocre touring company as they blunder from an ominously bad dress rehearsal to a spectacularly disastrous performance. Noises Off is a hysterical romp packed full of forgotten cues, missed connections, and backstage hilarity!
