One of Agatha Christie's twistiest mysteries, The Mousetrap is the longest running play in theatre history. As the play begins, a terrible blizzard has trapped a number of guests inside a recently opened hotel. The mood goes from bad to worse with the news that a woman has been murdered nearby, and it seems that one of the guests is destined to be the killer's next target!
The first production of The Mousetrap opened in London's West End in 1952, and has been running ever since. This Alley Theatre production, which is part of the ExxonMobil Summer Chills season, is directed by James Black.
