Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap is the longest running play in the world. Who's the murderer? Come and find out!
The first performance of The Mousetrap was in London in 1952. It's so popular, the show is still running today. The Mousetrap is a classic whodunnit, which takes place in a remote English country house hotel during a snow storm.
The hotel owners and their guests are shocked when Detective Sergeant Trotter turns up and tells them a murderer is coming to the hotel. Then, suddenly, one of the guests is murdered: it seems the murderer has already arrived!
Written by Agatha Christie, the queen of the crime novel, The Mousetrap is a traditional English murder mystery. She created two of the greatest detectives in fiction, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot. Expect the usual twists, turns and double-bluffs as you try to work out which character is responsible for the murder. After the show, you'll be asked to keep the identity of the killer a secret so the play remains a mystery...
Packed with suspense and intrigue, this is a London show you have to see.
