The Mousetrap is famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of theatre, with more than 25,000 performances.

The thriller gathers together a group of people in a country house cut off by the snow when, to their horror, they discover that there is a murderer in their midst.

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.
