Watching a West End show is #15 in our London Bucket List

Director: Ian Talbot; Written by: Agatha Christie; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Liz Elvin, William Findley, Russell Floyd, Mathew Foster, Malcolm James, Joel Macey, Arabella Neale, Emily Plumtree

Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap is the world's longest-running play — it's been a West End hit now for an incredible 60 years.

It's a clever murder-mystery whodunnit which will keep you guessing right until the end... unless we tell you who did it (which we won't, we promise).

There are eight potential suspects, and they are all enjoying their stay at a country guest house until they find themselves snowed in by the terrible weather (uh-oh!). Needless to say, with a load of holiday makers trapped inside a house with only a limited supply of booze, it's not long before a murder takes place, and a detective is sent round to interview them one by one.

But each person seems to be avoiding the truth... either by their silence, or their lies. So which one is guilty?

Here is a clue: It's not Keyser Soze.

Sunday Times – "A truly entertaining classic" The Observer – "Deservedly a classic among murder thrillers"
