From the best-selling author of all time and the Dame of murder-mystery storytelling, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap holds the world record for the longest running production, mesmerizing audiences for more than sixty years. Christie weaves a clever and suspenseful 1950s whodunit, which leaves even the most impressive gumshoe guessing. Monkswell Manor welcomes five strangers in the midst of a snowstorm and on the heels of a murder in town. When the second victim is found in the Manor, everyone becomes a suspect and hidden identities and motives are revealed. Will the identity of the murderer be revealed before they strike again?!
