Agatha Christie’s iconic play, The Mousetrap

This all-Australian production is one of 60 professional productions that have been licensed worldwide in celebration of The Mousetrap’s (60th) Diamond Anniversary.
Christie’s classic "whodunit" opened on London’s West End in November 1952 and has since played over 24,000 performances. The Mousetrap
is the longest
running show of any kind in the world and continues to delight audiences to this day at London’s St. Martin’s Theatre.
At Monkswell Manor, the news on the radio reports that a murder that has recently taken place in London. The young owners of the once-regal estate recently converted into a guesthouse,
hardly notice the news. They are far too busy preparing for the arrival of their first guests.
As the guests arrive safely and the Manor becomes snowed in, a policeman arrives on skis
suspecting that one of the seven occupants may be the killer. After a second murder occurs in the Manor, Sergeant Trotter is convinced. Suspects include the young married couple,
a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired army major, and an unexpected visitor who claims his car has run into a snowdrift.
During his interrogation, Sergeant Trotter uncovers the many mysterious secrets of everyone present, as he tries to solve the murder in true Christie style.
has thrilled audiences that span many generations and continues to delight a new generation of theatregoers nightly with all the classic elements that have
made Agatha Christie’s works as appealing today as when they were first written. The Mousetrap is sure to be a highlight on the national arts calendar for 2012 and celebrate the
play’s Diamond (60th) Anniversary with a superb all-Australian production.
