About Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap has been at home at St. Martins Theatre in the West End for almost 70 years and is still keeping millions of people from every corner of the globe on the edge of their seats.

The Mousetrap first entered the record books in 1958 when it became the longest-running show of any kind in the history of British theatre. The incredible show continues to attract audiences from all over the world. 

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 Mousetrap gathers a group of people together at a stately countryside guesthouse in the converted Monkswell Manor. A snowstorm cuts the patrons off, and they discover, to their horror, a killer is amongst them. Which one is the murderer? Who will be their next victim?

The characters become increasingly suspicious as the show goes on until each and every one of their shameful pasts is revealed. And then, until the very last moment, when the identity of the killer and motive are finally revealed.

The best-loved murder mystery of all time by the best-selling novelist of all time. Case closed!
