The cleverest murder mystery of British Theatre

The Telegraph on The Mousetrap

Discover why Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap has kept people guessing for so long, becoming the longest running show of any kind in the history of 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.

Experience shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.

Starring Gwyneth Strong (Only Fools and Horses, EastEnders).

Running time: About 2 hours and 20 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)

A truly entertaining classic thriller
