DIARY: PR girl gives up the rat race for The Mousetrap

If you are in PR for the fame and glamour, you’re in the wrong business. At least according to College Hill secretary Suzanne Rigden.

If you are in PR for the fame and glamour, you’re in the wrong business.

At least according to College Hill secretary Suzanne Rigden.



Rigden is leaving the profession because there is not enough of it

around and is heading for a real taste of the luvvy life with a leading

role in The Mousetrap, the world’s longest running play, at St Martin’s

Theatre in London.



‘I did acting for five or six years,’ explains Suzanne, ‘But a couple of

years ago I decided to work for some proper money. Then I went to the

audition with a friend last week and it brought it all back to me. I

couldn’t believe it when I got the part.



‘It has been really good fun here, but you’re dealing with other

people’s glamour and this is an opportunity not to be missed.’



Suzanne will play guest-house owner Mollie Ralston in the 43-yeas-old

whodunit for an initial six-month run.



But it is good to know she will be taking with her the invaluable skills

acquired during her short time in PR. When asked by PR Week about the

identity of the murderer in the play she replied: ‘I can’t comment on

that’.
