SYNOPSIS
A snowstorm traps a group of strangers at Monkswell Manor. One of them is a murderer. Suddenly, into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when another guest is killed. Superb intrigue, intricate plot twists and shuddering suspense are all woven into a clever mystery. And just when you think you've got it figured out, Ms. Christie pulls a classic twist. A whodunit by the foremost mystery writer of her time.

CAST OF CHARACTERS

Molly Ralston: (Late 20's to early 30's) Proprietress of Monkswell Manor and in over her head. Married one year to Giles. Fussy, anxious, and determined.

Giles Ralston: (20's to 30's) Supportive to Molly, yet assertive with guests. A workhorse with wry wit. The man of the house.

Christopher Wren: (20's or early 30's) Foppish, disheveled and overtly promiscuous. Loves to incite others. A wild card.

Mrs. Boyle: (Late 50's or 60's) Demanding, critical and impossible to please. An old bully with an ax to grind.

Major Metcalf: (40's to 60's) Retired soldier to the Indian Army. A peace-maker with a good ear and military bearing.

Miss Casewell: (30's to 50's) Very mannish in nature and quick to engage others to assert her way. A real foil to Mrs. Boyle.

Mr. Paravicini: (40-s to 60's) Very flamboyant "European" character. Could be a Circus Ring-Master or a Double Agent.

Detective Sergeant Trotter: (30's to 50's) Police investigator. Authoritarian nature, confrontational and accusatory.

*We reserve the right to end auditions after 8:30 if all actors present have already been seen. If you plan to arrive after 8:30, please call 262-782-4431 the day before to notify the Production Coordinator, Kristen Kraklow.
