The classic mystery about a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions that are in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others characters includes a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman. Soon after he arrives, the jurist is killed. With a famous Agatha Christie switch finish, the Mousetrap is the longest running play in history.
