CLASSIC Agatha Christie thriller The Mousetrap is scheduled to come to Leeds Grand from September 1-5. The whodunnit was the longest-running shoe of any kind in the history of 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.

The play promises shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner, in what the Telegraph described as the cleverest murder mystery of British theatre.

The Mousetrap originally opened in 1952 in London starring Richard Attenborough and his wife Sheila Sim. In 1958 The Mousetrap gained the ‘world’s longest-running stage production’ accolade and never gave it up, embarking on its first-ever UK tour to celebrate the 60th anniversary.

The classic drama was seen by more than 600,000 people across the UK, breaking box office records at many venues. Mousetrap Productions also took in Scandinavia, Venezuela, and across the United States and Canada.
