The Mousetrap, 28th to 30th November
The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed. In her own inimitable style, Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.
Review of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
8th December 2009 to 2nd January 2010.
Oxford Daily Info has a review here: "a great night out for all of the family, providing humour for the grown-up audience members as well as for the slightly younger, more excitable ones... before whisking the kids off to the traditional panto, be sure to consider this timeless classic instead".
