What is The Mousetrap about?
Five guests arrive at a country hotel, only to find themselves snowed in. A policeman turns up, warning of a murderer on the loose. One by one, the guests are investigated until a trap is laid to catch the killer.

To tell you any more would not only spoil the fun but also break the oingoing tradition of everybody keeping the murderer´s identity to themselves even after seeing the play – which means there really is only one way you’re ever going to find out whodunnit!

Indeed, the reputation of this murder mystery masterpiece goes from strength to strength as new generations of theatregoers are tricked and teased by a plot with more turns than a helter skelter!
