 "The Mousetrap" is a murder mystery set in a country hotel operated by Mollie and Giles Ralston. They are snowed in with four guests and a traveler who ran his car into a snowdrift.

 The play originally premiered in London in 1952. It has since gained notoriety as the longest running play in theater history with more than 23,000 performances to date.
