The world’s longest running show in the world IS COMING!
Michael Coppel, Louise Withers, Linda Bewick in association with Adrian Barnes and by arrangement with Mousetrap Productions Ltd London, are proud to be bringing Agatha Christie’s iconic play, The Mousetrap to Australia.

Christie’s classic ‘whodunit” opened on London’s West End in November 1952 and continues to delight audiences to this day at London’s St. Martin’s Theatre, making it the longest running show of any kind in the world!

This all-Australian production is one of 60 professional productions that have been licensed worldwide in celebration of The Mousetrap’s (60th) Diamond Anniversary, which will include productions in every continent with productions scheduled for countries from Russia and China to Turkey, Holland and Venezuela.

This is the very first time The Mousetrap will be touring Australia. The Diamond Anniversary Australian Tour of The Mousetrap will open at The Sydney Theatre at Walsh Bay on June 30 and will go on to play at Perth’s His Majesty’s Theatre from August 14 and Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre from August 30 with other cities currently in planning.

The Mousetrap has thrilled audiences that span many generations and continues to delight a new generation of theatre goers nightly with all the classic elements that have made Agatha Christie’s works as appealing today as when they were first written.

The Mousetrap Tour in Australia is a great opportunity to see this theatre phenomenon and help celebrate the play’s Diamond (60th) Anniversary with a superb all-Australian production.


Synopsis

So... whodunit?!

At Monkswell Manor, the news on the radio reports that a murder that has recently taken place in London. Mollie and Giles Ralston, the young owners of the once-regal estate recently converted into a guesthouse, hardly notice the news. They are far too busy preparing for the arrival of their first guests and concerned that the heavy snowfalls may prevent the guests reaching their destination. As the guests arrive safely and the Manor becomes snowed in, a policeman arrives on skis suspecting that one of the seven occupants may be the killer. After a second murder occurs in the Manor, Sergeant Trotter is convinced.

Suspects include the young married couple, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired army major, and an unexpected visitor who claims his car has run into a snowdrift. During his interrogation, Sergeant Trotter uncovers the many mysterious secrets of everyone present, as he tries to solve the murder in true Christie style.
