HOTA in association with John Frost for Crossroads Live and Shake & Stir Theatre Co presents

Wed 29 May - Sun 2 Jun
Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap

Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap

Don’t just see it. Solve it. 

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is the world’s longest-running play.  

This thrilling West End production is THE genre-defining murder mystery from the best-selling novelist of all time… case closed! For over 70 years, The Mousetrap has kept millions of people from every corner of the globe on the edge of their seats. 

As news spreads of a murder in London, a group of seven strangers find themselves snowed in at a remote countryside guesthouse. When a police sergeant arrives, the guests discover - to their horror - that a killer is in their midst! One by one, the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts. Which one is the murderer? Who'll be their next victim? Can you solve this world-famous mystery for yourself? 

‘The cleverest murder mystery of the theatre. I think the mousetrap could run forever.’ Daily Telegraph 
‘Even more thrilling than the plot is the atmosphere of shuddering suspense. No one brews it better than Agatha Christie.’ Daily Express
