The Mousetrap has the longest initial run of any play in history, with over 24,500 performances so far and is the longest running show of any type in the modern era. The play is also known for its twist ending, which the audience is traditionally asked not to reveal after leaving the theater. Directed by Bobby Castello and assisted by Emily Trudeau, this "Who Did It" murder mystery follows a couple, Mollie and Giles Ralston, played by Cheshire Resident Donna Ekegren and Christopher Jones, as they receive guests at their guest house, the converted Monkswell Manor. As guests Christopher Wren (Paul Kuehn), Major Metcalf (Pat Petipas), Mrs. Boyle (Joanne Palmieri), Miss Casewell (Jen Berlin), Mr. Paravacini (Nick Demetriades) and Sergeant Trotter (Patrick Spadaccino) get comfortable, they become snowed in and find out that they might be in danger. But before anyone can do anything, they find out the danger is already there! As the twist and turns start to form with each person, we find out some guests carry more secrets than others!
