Why you should see The Mousetrap

Because thousands of happy audiences from more than 29,000 performances can’t be wrong. (The Mousetrap is the longest-running play in the world, anywhere.)
Because a thrilling whodunit set in a snowed-in English country house is a classic for a reason. It’s irresistible.
Because we couldn’t guess the ending. Can you?


Trapped in Monkswell Manor by a snowstorm, a sundry group of guests and staff are also ensnared in a chilling web of fear after a local woman is murdered. A police detective arrives on skis to interrogate the diverse mix of suspects, who include the newlyweds running the house, the peculiar young architect, the haughty old pensioner, the retired general, the weary traveler, and the mysterious stranger. Will they find the murderer in time? Or is it too late to escape from this trap?
