A classic. A landmark. A legend.

Following a sell-out run in 2012, The Mousetrap is back.

The longest-running show of any kind in the history of British theatre - with over 25,000 performances - The Mousetrap is a play to be proud of. 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.

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 of the murderer are finally revealed.

"The cleverest murder mystery of British Theatre" Telegraph
