In Agatha Christie's Most Famous Mystery, the group stranded in a country house

discover that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? The plot thickens.

The first production of The Mousetrap was in London's West End in 1952 and ran continuously until March 16, 2020, when the stage performances had to be discontinued due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The longest-running West End show, it has by far the longest initial run of any play in history, with its 27,500th performance taking place Sept. 18, 2018. The play has a twist ending, which the audience are traditionally asked not to reveal after leaving the theatre.
