THE MOUSETRAP by Agatha Christie runs now through Sunday at Hartford Stage.  It’s a freezing night in 1947 and a motley group of strangers find themselves suddenly trapped in an inn.

With intrigue, mystery, murder, and a dash of humor, this snowy getaway unfolds into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.  www.hartfordstage.org or 860-527-5151
