About the Show

The Mousetrap is a murder mystery by the much loved Agatha Christie which opened in London's West End in 1952 and has been running continuously ever since. It has the longest initial run (60 years) of any play in the history of the theatre with over 24,000 performances and one of the original stars playing Trotter was a young Richard Attenborough. In celebration of it's 60th anniversary the iconic "Mousetrap" has been released for 12 months in Australia and STG applied for and obtained the rights to stage it in our theatre. In the past it costs you a ticket to London if you wanted to see it.

A young couple Mollie & Giles Ralston have started a guest house in the recently converted Monkswell Manor and after their guests and some unexpected stranded travelers arrive they are all snowed in. It becomes apparent that one their guests is a murderer but which one? The play is famous for its twist ending and it has become a tradition that at the finale of each performance audiences are requested not to reveal
"Who done it".
