London Theatre with Hotel


The Mousetrap

The Mousetrap

The Mousetrap, based on a short story by Agatha Christie, is famously the longest running play in London having been performed for over 55 years.

The story is based around a young couple and the hotel they run together at Monkswell Manor. Having been snowed in with some guests they are surprised to be joined by Detective Sergeant Trotter who arrive on skis to warn them of the imminent arrival of a suspected murderer following the death of a woman in London. A murder is committed and the guests realise they may already have a murder in their midst.

The Queen of crime ensured that the Mousetrap would never be released in book form in the UK which has helped keep the identity of the killer a secret all these years.
