A West End staple for 65 years, The Mousetrap is the longest consistently running play in British theatre history.

The Mousetrap is famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of British theatre. 

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.
