Miles Edward Merbinau has somehow inherited the film rights to the world’s longest running play, Agatha Christie’s THE MOUSETRAP. Unfortunately, due to a legal technicality, he can’t do anything with them until the original London production of the play (now in its 60th year!) closes… which hardly seems imminent. Several “peaceable” efforts to shut down THE MOUSETRAP having backfired on him, Merbinau is now determined to borrow a leaf from Dame Agatha’s own works… murder!
KILL A BETTER MOUSETRAP is based in historical fact, but Mr. Merbinau’s far-fetched theories, wild speculations, and harebrained schemes arising from that fact provide the hilarity in this one-act comedy by Scott K. Ratner.
