One of the most famous plays ever written – certainly the longest running. It is the 70th anniversary this up-coming season. The play only closed during the dark days of COVID, the first time since 1953. Mousetrap has all the elements of a good mystery: snowbound guests in a remote Manor House, a killer on the loose; everyone is a suspect. Agatha Christie at her best.
