What is The Mousetrap about?

The Mousetrap is a classic whodunnit that takes place in a remote English country house hotel during a snowstorm. The hotel owners and their guests are shocked when Detective Sergeant Trotter turns up and tells them that a murderer is coming to the hotel. But it seems the murderer has already arrived when one of the guests is found dead!

The Mousetrap is written by Agatha Christie, the queen of the crime novel and creator of some of the greatest detectives in fiction. Expect the usual twists, turns and double-bluffs as the audience tries 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 to others.
