Originally written for Queen Mary’s 80th birthday in the late 1940s, The Mousetrap has since gone on to garner universal acclaim and a diverse fan base. The details seem familiar at first; a murder, a cast of secretive characters, and a snowstorm that traps them all in a manor. But the plot offers twists aplenty, encouraging audience members to piece together the clues before the detective ruins everyone’s good time by solving the case. Audiences worldwide have been captivated by the play’s roller-coaster story and sense of intrigue for more than 60 years; the original West End production, which opened in 1952, is still running to this day, much to the chagrin of the theater’s ushers, who just want to go home.
