A Murder MysteryThe Mousetrap opened in the West End of London in 1952, and has been running continuously since then. It has the longest initial run of any play in history, with over 24,000 performances so far. It is the longest running show (of any type) of the modern era.

When a women is murdered during a snowstorm in London, suspicion falls on the guests at Monkswell Manor, a newly opened guesthouse. Sergeant Trotter arrives on skis, informing everyone that a notebook was found at the London crime scene, listing the address at which the murder occurred and also that of Monkswell Manor, implying that the guesthouse could be the site of a second murder. Soon after his arrival, the phone lines go dead and all are stranded at the guesthouse in the unusually heavy snowstorm.

When one of the guests is found murdered the residents of the Manor suspect each other. Accusatory clues draw attention to characters acting suspiciously. The play is also known for its twist ending, which at the end of every performance the audience is asked not to reveal.
