BLACKWOOD – Whodunit? That will be the question when Stages at Camden County College performs “The Mousetrap” this month and next month in the Dennis Flyer Theatre in Lincoln Hall on the Blackwood campus of Camden County College.
The play will feature a cat-and-mouse concept of who the murderer is at a manor house.
The play is from a story by author Agatha Christie, according to the Stages at Camden County College website, http://www.stagesccc.com. The play is about a group of strangers who are trapped together at a manor house during a snowstorm and they soon discover one of them is the murderer.
“The Mousetrap” is a mystery thriller, said Marjorie Sokoloff, the head of the theater department at Camden County College and the artistic director and producer of the play. She said this is not the first time the college is staging this play.
“We hope the audience will enjoy the show,” Sokoloff said.
“The Mousetrap” is the world’s most famous whodunit and has been running for 60 years, according to the Stages at Camden County College website. It is the longest-running play in history, according to the website.
During the play, the audience spends its time trying to grasp the clues as to identify the murderer, according to the website.
