The Mousetrap

■ Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap will be staged at Theatre On the Bay from Wednesday December 5 to Saturday January 19. The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a guest house, Monkswell Manor, and cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at last, in a nerve-shredding moment, the identity and the motive are finally revealed. West End star Mark Wynter plays the role of Mr Paravicini. Tickets cost from R130 to R230. Book through Computicket or the Theatre On The Bay box office line on 021 437 1015.
