I grew up watching “Perry Mason” with my mom

It was old. It was black and white. And it was one of the first grown up shows I can remember watching.

They were all re-runs, of course, but I didn’t care.

I was learning the fine art of looking for clues and playing detective to figure out “whodunit.” Most of the time I couldn’t figure it out, but slowly I began catching on to the patterns and habits of a murderer.

It was great fun for me, which is why it will come as no surprise to you to hear how much I loved Agatha Christie’s on-stage murder mystery “The Mousetrap” currently playing at The Chemainus Theatre.

Every time Jay and I go to see what’s playing at The Chemainus Theatre, we are not disappointed. It took us several years to finally try it out, and I think it’s safe to say we are now sold. Everything we’ve seen has been superb and The Mousetrap was no exception.
