Review: The Mousetrap

One Sentence Summary: Agatha Christie's classic murder mystery, set in a country manor on a blustery English winter's night.

Trivia: The Mousetrap opened in 1952, and is the longest running play in the world.

Best thing about it: The casts have just rolled over, so we saw a surprisingly fresh show, given that it's been performed continuously for nearly 60 years.

We left thinking: Modern crime dramas owe a lot to Agatha Christie, so it was great to see her done properly.

Rating: 8 / 10
