67 years old,

The brainchild of Agatha Christie,

Opened on the London stage in 1952,

A good old fashioned murder mystery.

A guest house manor,

A woman found dead,

The finger of suspicion turns on the guests,

Who really is the culprit instead?

A snowbound manor,

A killer will strike again.

A murder mystery unsolved,

Will the detective end the killer's reign?

The Mousetrap has survived the test of time,

Audiences flock to this theatrical delight hard to resist,

An unforgettable whodunnit,

Memorable in its plot with a twist.
