The Mousetrap

The National Arts Club
Cast as: Mrs. Boyle

Noël and Company will present a staged reading of Agatha Christie’s murder mystery The Mousetrap May 14 at the company’s new home at the National Arts Club in Manhattan.

Directed by Larry Fuller, the 7 PM free reading will feature Tony Award winner Carole Shelley (The Elephant Man), Jill Paice (Curtains), Greg Jackson, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka (A Little Night Music), Clodagh Bowyer, Merwyn Goldsmith and John Windsor-Cunningham.

Here’s how Noël and Company describes The Mousetrap: “For Mollie and Giles (a seemingly unassuming young couple) it seems challenge enough to open a grand Bed and Breakfast in the middle of nowhere. However, add to the mix the blizzard of the century, violent murder, a half a dozen guests (any one of whom could be an inmate at Bedlam) and you have what has become the worlds’ longest-running play. A hilarious, taut and brilliantly constructed whodunit that will keep you guessing right up to the last gasp! So please – stay the night at Monkswell Manor…and rest in peace!”
