The Mousetrap - Theatr Clwyd

I've resurrected my love of the theatre. OK so I can't pop down to London to watch all the big plays, but my local theatre puts on great shows and I've decided that I'm going to go to the theatre. I don't care if no-one wants to go with me, if I can holiday alone, I can theatre alone!

Tonight I am going to see Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. I've always wanted to see this. Back in April I watched "And Then There Were None" with Paul Nicholas and Susan Penhaligon which was brilliant, so I'm really looking forward to watching The Mousetrap, and it doesn't matter that's it's not on in the West End or there are any big names to watch out for!

I'm pleased to say that I really enjoyed it, it was a very clever murder mystery. For those of you who don't know the premise of the story, a group of people meet in a country house in the middle of nowhere. It snows and so they are cut off from everything when they discover that there is a murderer amongst them! Each character is suspicious in their own right, and as we go through the play we discover more about each character and their sordid pasts. At the end the identity of the murderer and their motive is revealed, and in the true spirit of the play, at the very end the audience is asked to keep the secret alive, and not tell anyone who the murderer is!

A very enjoyable night, and now it is time for bed!
