Character Breakdown


Mollie Ralston - the wife of Giles Ralston, Mollie is the young owner of Monkswell Manor, a Victorian era estate that has recently been converted into a guesthouse.

Giles Ralston - Mollie’s husband of one year, Giles is the co-host of Monkswell Manor.

Christopher Wren - A flighty, obviously neurotic young man and a guest at the Manor.

Mrs. Boyle - A critical, older woman who is pleased by nothing she observes. Stern and generally unpleasant, Mrs. Boyle is a guest at the Manor

Major Metcalf - A typical retired British military officer, Major Metcalf is a guest at the Manor.

Miss Casewell - A bit masculine in her demeanor, Miss Casewell, another guest, remains mysteriously aloof from the other guests.

Mr. Paravicini - A man of unknown provenance, appears to be affecting a foreign accent and artificially aged with make-up. An unexpected guest, Mr. Paravicini is there only because his car became stuck in a snowbank during a terrible blizzard.

Detective Sergeant Trotter - A late arriving guest, Detective Trotter is trying to establish a relationship between any of the guests and a murder already committed at another location.

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap begins when a group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm, one of which is a murderer. To investigate the crime, a policeman probes the background of everyone present, threatening to unveil the secrets of each character. The investigator suggests that everyone there is not only a suspect but also a possible next victim. Each guest seems to have some connection to the host couple, expected or not.  This classic murder-mystery is the longest-running play in history, playing the West End in London since 1952.
