As the longest-running stage production in the world, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap has been entertaining audiences continuously in London since its debut 1952 – and you won't want to miss a performance of this stunning whodunit in Hobart in May and June.
It's estimated that more than ten million audience members worldwide have experienced The Mousetrap for themselves – and faithfully kept the secrets of its mysterious plot for generations of future audiences.
Between May 25 and June 9, Hobart's Playhouse Theatre on Bathurst Street will play host to this classic murder mystery, which will keep audiences on the edge of their seats until the final curtain falls.
The plot centres on a group of travellers staying at a British guesthouse. Trapped by a snowstorm, it soon becomes apparent that there is a murderer in their midst. The Mousetrap is famous for its twists and turns – as well as its surprise ending!
Adult tickets for The Mousetrap, performed by the Hobart Repertory Theatre Society, cost $27 – concession tickets are available and performances on Tuesdays cost $22. Tickets can be purchased from Centertainment.com.au.
