POLAND — The Poland Players will present “The Mousetrap,” by Agatha Christie, the longest continuous running show in theater history, in early November.

The cast of characters, all with something to hide, has been sequestered in Monkswell Mansion during a snowstorm. Soon, one of them will be murdered.

Tension mounts as past secrets are revealed and the cast tries to solved the murder before the killer strikes again.

The play, set in the 1940s just after World War II, centers on Mollie and Giles Ralston who have just converted the old Monkswell Manor they inherited into a hotel for long-term guests. The couple are new at the hotel business, but nothing has prepared them for the group of individuals who come to stay.

While the guests begin to arrive in a terrible blizzard, it is revealed that there has been a horrific murder just down the street. When a policeman arrives to inform the guests that he has information that one of them might be the next target, the suspense intensifies.

“The Mousetrap” will be performed Nov. 3-6 in Dr. Robert Wall Theatre at Poland Regional High School, 1457 Maine St. Curtain is at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for students and children. For tickets, call 998-5400, extension 218, or e-mail [email protected]
