The Mousetrap

Pin It

Written by the grande dame of murder mysteries, Agatha Christie, The Mousetrap is the longest running show in the world.

Directed by award-winning Alan Swedlow, this is the whodunit for the festive season!Newly opened guesthouse, Monkswell Manor, is snowed in and amongst the seemingly ordinary gathering of guests, a killer lurks Ö In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner. A snow-bound group of visitors is trapped in a guesthouse with a murderer in their midst. Having already killed once, he strikes again. The tension is razor sharp: everyone is under suspicion; everyone a potential victim. One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts. But who will be next, and who is the killer?

Since 1952, The Mousetrap - Agatha Christie's twisting whodunit and the world's longest running play - has entertained an estimated 10 million people. This year, just before the 60th anniversary, Pieter Toerien returns to the Christmas Christie tradition with a stellar all-South African cast.
