THE ANSWER IS JUST ACROSS THE STREET FROM KXLY.
THE MOUSE TRAP
Mark / interviewing Wes
it's an agatha christie..murder mystery melodrama
of that period...
it opened on the west side of London.
AND THAT'S WHERE WES LOOKED FOR INSPIRATION.
I'm trying to re-create the feeling of the original
production in 1952..
ONE WAY HE'S DOING THAT? REAL SNOW ON STAGE.
One of the things they did on the original production.
they had a snow room.
and they would have snow on them and and they would
walk on stage and it would melt.
so I bought a snow cone machine so I could have snow
A SNOW CONE MACHINE? AS A WEATHER GUY.
I LOVE THAT...BUT.
DOWN TO BUSINESS.
WHO IS THE KILLER?
and Kris Crocker is the murderess...
Kris Crocker is a potential murderess.
that's part of the rules of Agatha Christie.
don't give away who the murderer is.
SWORN TO SECRECY, EH? WE'LL SEE ABOUT THAT!
Mark & Kris.
maybe sitting on the stage or in theatre seats.
you play Mollie of Monkswell Manor?
Are you the killer?
I can't tell you...
Sure you can
did you do it?
tell me with your english accent
Mark looks at camera exasperated
I'D FINALLY GIVEN UP.
Kris accidentally left her script behind.
I'm finally going to find out.
Mark flipping to the end of the script
LEARNING THE TRUTH COMES WITH A PRICE.
Shadow falls across Mark's back.
I promise I won't say anything.
