The longest running play on London’s West End comes to Lyndhurst Mansion. It’s murder…and spine-tinglingly fun when an eclectic group of strangers are stranded in a remote mansion (played by Lyndhurst Mansion) during a terrible snow storm. Sargent Trotter arrives to investigate a grisly crime that appears connected to someone there. The roads are blocked, the phone lines cut and then, MURDER! Who is the murderer in their midst? Of course, the mysterious guests all have their secrets. The Sergeant probes the background of everyone, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Will he find the murderer before another one is committed.
The Mousetrap will open March 16 and run through April 2, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 pm and Sundays at 6:00 pm, with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 pm. Tickets are

Agatha Christie, the undisputed queen of crime, penned this fiendishly delightful, nerve-shredding whodunnit. A perfectly twisted web of a play, this mystery-thriller truly invented the rules of the genre. The Mousetrap is celebrating the 64th year of a record breaking London run during which over 26,000 performances have been given. It is quite simply a great piece of theatrical history and what better place to experience it than at Lyndhurst Mansion!
