Suspicious characters at Monkswell Manor
The Mousetrap opened at the Ambassadors Theatre, right next door to St. Martins, where it played until 1974. Ever since, its home has been St. Martins. The classic mystery is set in the grand hall of Monkswell Manor, which owners and newly-married couple Mollie and Giles Ralston have converted into a guest house. As they prepare for the arrival of their very first guests, it is announced on the radio that there has been a murder. Although, the couple are hastily running around with the last touches of preparation, they do not hear the announcement. A unique selection of characters arrive at the manor, including the strange, hyperactive Christopher Wren and Mrs. Boyle, who is unable to be pleased by anything. An unexpected man also arrives, Mr. Paravicini, who claims, in a rather oddly affected foreign accent, to have crashed his car nearby. Mollie is informed by phone call that a police officer will be visiting the manor regarding the murder, and suspicions between the guests begin to grow. The tale grows into a mystery like no other, although the audience is traditionally asked not to reveal who the murderer is at the end of the show, so you'll have to see it to find out!

The influence of Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie never expected her play to run for so long - eight months, she is reported of estimating. The previous record holder for the longest running show was 'Chu Chin Chow', a musical by Oscar Asche, until 1958 when The Mousetrap broke the record with its 2,239th performance. 2002 saw the 50th anniversary of the now legendary play, with a performance attended by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
