Mousetrap Opening Soon | Via Mesa

The next show Palisadians can catch at Pierson Playhouse is Agatha Christie’s “Mousetrap”—which will run from August 30 to October 6.

The story takes place in post-WWII England, when a snowstorm isolates a country hotel being opened for its first weekend by a young couple. As the play begins, there is a murder in London, and the guests learn that the murderer may be among them.

“Mousetrap” is directed by Marc Antonio Pritchett and produced by Sherry Coon and Nona Hale. Shows will take place Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., as well as Sundays at 2 p.m.
