    The performance was entertaining from beginning to end. A perfect and substantial set to set the scene which started to fall apart before the play started. Little by little as the play progressed the set began to crumble in the best traditions of Aldwych and, later, Whitehall farces. Timing and pace kept the audience guessing and laughing as the story unravelled with clever asides to Agatha Christie plots. The Mousetrap and being trapped by a snowstorm added spice to the story. I’d happily see it again just for the fun of being part of an audience enjoying an evening of nonstop laughter.

    My 8-year-old said, “I never laughed so much in a day.” She was in hysterics. We all were. Highly recommend
