The world’s favourite murder mystery Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap.

The Mousetrap is famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of theatre, with over 26,000 performances in London.

The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.

In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.
