Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap will continue its record-breaking UK tour with a six-night run at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe next month.

The beloved murder mystery, celebrating its 60th anniversary, is the story of when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst.

One by one the characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last moment the identity and motive are revealed.

The cast for the productions at The Baths Hall includes Hester Arden (Macbeth, Orange Tree Theatre) as Miss Casewell, Edward Elgood as Christopher Wren, Mark Homer (Eastenders’ Tony Hill) as Giles Ralston, Esther McAuley as Mollie Ralston and Jonathan Sidgwick (Hollyoaks; Coronation Street) as Mr Paravicini.

William Ilkley joins from the West End production of The Mousetrap as Major Metcalf alongside Luke Jenkins and Anne Kavanagh who will reprise their roles from the 2014 tour as Sgt Trotter and Mrs Boyle respectively.

The Mousetrap is at the Baths Hall from 15th-20th June.

Tickets priced £24.50 for the evening shows and £21.50 for the matinee are available now on 0844 8542776 or www.bathshall.co.uk
