Kāpiti Playhouse is presenting the world famous murder mystery production The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie.

Tickets have been in great demand and several nights are already sold out. This promises to be a great night of entertainment with an excellent cast and the play is director by Gennie Barton.

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is a murder mystery which opened in London’s West End in 1952 and ran continuously, with over 27,500 performances, until March 2020 when performances had to be discontinued due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Mousetrap takes place in a newly established bed and breakfast, Monkswell Manor, outside London during a blizzard. There has been a murder nearby and the murderer is still free to carry out their further plans.

As the guests arrive, everyone fits the murderer’s description and has a secret. The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house, cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.

Which one is the murderer? Who will be their next victim? Can you solve this world-famous mystery for yourself?
