Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap
August 20-22 & 27-19
After a local woman is murdered, the guests and staff at Monkswell Manor find themselves stranded during a snowstorm. It soons becomes clear that the killer is among them, and the seven strangers grow increasingly suspicious of one another. A police detective, who arrives on skis, interrogates the suspects: the newlyweds running the house; a spinster with a curious background; an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; a retired Army major; a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift; and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. When a second murder takes place, tensions and fears escalate. This murder mystery features a brilliant surprise finish from Agatha Christie, the foremost mystery writer of her time.
The Mousetrap is the longest-running play in the history of London's West End.
