Opened at the Ambassadors Theatre on 25th Nov 1952, and transferred to St Martin's Theatre on 25th March 1974.

The Mousetrap is celebrating the 63rd year of a record breaking run during which over 25,000 performances have been given.


The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst.

Who can it be?

One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.
