The Mousetrap 2014
The legendary, record-breaking, Box Office smash hit thriller celebrates 60th anniversary
A classic. A landmark. A legend.
The Mousetrap is famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of British theatre – with over 25,000 performances it’s a play to be proud of. And to celebrate 60 incredible years on stage, it’s going on tour for the first time to give you a once in a life-time opportunity to see this masterpiece here at the xxx 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.
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.
