A woman has been murdered in London. A young couple have started a guest house at Monkswell Manor and have 4 guests arrive, only to find themselves snowed-in.
They read of the murder of Mrs Maureen Lyon in the paper and shortly after, are visited by the local Detective Sergeant, who tells of a murderer being loose in the area, heading to the Manor. Suddenly, one of the guests is murdered... the murderer is already among them!
In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie created The Mousetrap with an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.
The Mousetrap is the world's longest running play, having opened on November 25th, 1952.
It continues to thrill audiences from every corner of the globe.
During the phenomenal run there have been no fewer than 382 actors and actresses appearing in the play. Some cast members are in the Guinness Book of Records - David Raven as the 'Most Durable Actor' for 4575 performances as Major Metcalf and the late Nancy Seabrooke for a record breaking 15 years as an understudy.
Performance length is approximately 2 hours.
