Record Breaking Play, Agatha Christie's THE MOUSETRAP, Hits Exeter
The longest-running show of any kind in the history of British theatre, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap, will visit Exeter for a week in July.
To celebrate 60 incredible years on stage, it's going on tour for the first time to give audiences a once in a life-time opportunity to see this masterpiece at Exeter Northcott Theatre.
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.
