Mousetrap

The Mousetrap by Agathe Christie
apologies for the blur image

Watched this murder mystery play last night called Mousetrap, which was produced by RC Players. The play was a bit too late and the plot was quite predictable; I actually guessed who the murderer was by the middle of the play. But other than that, the set was amazing and the actors did a good job of exaggerated accents and eccentric behavior.

And it’s funny seeing all these actors in normal life, because every time I see them, my impression of them reverts back to the character that they played. I then wonder what that actor’s real character is like, but somehow I can’t shake off that first image. That’s one of the downfalls of theater, but also one of the most powerful aspects.
