Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mousetrap’, opened in the West End of London on the 25th November 1952, which means it has been running for over 50 years making it the world’s longest running play - an incredible achievement for any play and one that the producers are rightly proud of. In the course of the first 50 years, over 10 million people have seen the show!
The play is your regular ‘who dun it’ mystery. Eight people are snowed in at a guest house: Mollie and Giles Ralston, the owners; four invited guests, each with eccentric characteristics; the unexpected guest, who turns up out of the blue after his car overturns in the snow storm; and finally a skiing detective. Once everyone has arrived it is not long before a murder takes place and the detective assembles all the guests together and interrogates them one by one. Each avoid the truth, some by silence and others by lies? Can the murderer be caught before more deaths happen?
