Agatha Christie's classic 'whodunnit' The Mousetrap is an institution in London's West End, proudly holding the title for the world’s longest-running play of all time.

The murder mystery sees seven strangers snowed in at the remote countryside guesthouse Monkswell Manor. When a police sergeant arrives, the guests discover that a killer is among them — but who is it?

Hundreds of actors have played the cast of eight over the years, and now the production has released new behind-the-scenes images of the current cast, starring Rachel Summers, Christopher Bonwell, Joshua Glenister, Gay Soper, Miles Richardson, Jessica Temple, Sebastien Torkia, and George Hannigan.
