The play has also made theatrical history by having an original "cast member" survive all the cast changes since its opening night. The late Deryck Guyler can still be heard, via a recording, reading the radio news bulletin in the play to this present day. The set has been changed in and , but one prop survives from the original opening — the clock which sits on the mantelpiece of the fire in the main hall.

Notable milestones in the play's history include: 22 April — 1,th performance 13 September — Longest-ever run of a "straight" play in the West End 12 April — Longest-ever run of a show in the West End with performances the previous holder was Chu Chin Chow 9 December — 5,th performance 17 December — 10,th performance 16 December — 20,th performance 25 November — 50th anniversary; a special performance was attended by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh 18 November — 25,th performance In May during the London production's 49th year, and to mark the 25th anniversary of Christie's death the cast gave a semi-staged Sunday performance at the Palace Theatre, Westcliff-on-Sea as a guest contribution to the Agatha Christie Theatre Festival , a twelve-week history-making cycle of all of Agatha Christie's plays presented by Roy Marsden's New Palace Theatre Company.

Cast of the 60th birthday performance of The Mousetrap became Canada's longest running show, before finally closing on 18 January after a run of twenty-six years and over 9, performances. On 18th November , both the 25,th performance and the 60th year of the production were marked by a special, charity performance that featured Hugh Bonneville, Patrick Stewart, Julie Walters and Miranda Hart.

The money raised by the performance went towards Mousetrap Theatre Projects. Christopher Wren — The first guest to arrive at the hotel, Wren is a hyperactive young man who acts in a very peculiar manner. He admits he is running away from something, but refuses to say what. Wren claims to have been named after the architect of the same name by his parents. Mrs Boyle — A critical older woman who is pleased by nothing she observes.

Major Metcalf — Retired from the army, little is known about Major Metcalf. Miss Casewell — A strange, aloof, masculine woman who speaks offhandedly about the horrific experiences of her childhood.

Mr Paravicini — A man of unknown provenance, who turns up claiming his car has overturned in a snowdrift. He appears to be affecting a foreign accent and artificially aged with make-up.

Detective Sergeant Trotter — A policeman who arrives in a snow storm saying he has come to protect the guests from the murderer. The time — the present Act I Scene 1 — Late afternoon. A woman has been murdered in London. A young couple, Mollie and Giles Ralston, have started a guest house in the converted Monkswell Manor. Their first four guests arrive: Christopher Wren, Mrs. Boyle, Major Metcalf and Miss Casewell. Boyle complains about everything, and Giles offers to cancel her stay, but she refuses the offer.

They become snowed in together and read in the newspaper of the murder. An additional traveller, Mr. Paravicini, arrives stranded after he ran his car into a snowdrift, but he makes his hosts uneasy. Scene 2 — The following day after lunch. The imposing Mrs. Boyle complains to the other guests, first to Metcalf and then to Miss Casewell, who both try to get away from her.


Wren comes into the room claiming to have fled Mrs. Boyle in the library. Shortly afterwards, the police call on the phone, creating great alarm amongst the guests. Boyle suggests that Mollie check Wren's references. Detective Sergeant Trotter arrives on skis to inform the group that he believes a murderer is at large and on his way to the hotel, following the death of Mrs Maureen Lyon in London.

It was genius. Absulutely genius. Plus, this book contained some multiple POV love, which I believe is quite important for crime stories but I generally enjoy multiple POVs in every story. The writing was very quick, and the characters were deeply analysed psychologically, but also barely scratched the surface of their thoughts, in order to create an atmosphere of disorder, and let the reader make more assumptions about the killer.

book types ..... leads u the easy path

Shortly before they are to receive their first guests, a bitter cold and storm decends. Along with the cold, comes a murder. A Mrs. Lyon is murdered and clues suggest that the killer is headed to Monkswell Manor next.

Trapped in by a snownstorm, the killer needs to be unmasked before its too late. The "Three Blind Mice" rhyme is the inspiration for this Christie short story. A young couple opens a boarding house, a murder takes place nearby and with a limited amount of suspects, the killer is among them. In this regard, this work reminded me of 'And Then There Were None', where murder s take place in a secluded area and the basis of the story is a children's rhyme.

I have said this before but I will say it again, I love Agatha Christie. Wether a full length novel or short story, Christie delivers. There was no shorage of red herrings or misdirection in this brief book.

The plot builds gradually to reveal a more complex story than initially expected. The characters are given interesting backstories.

The reveal was very much satisfying. Fun fact, this book is based on real events.

This short story is the basis for 'The Mousetrap', a play that has now been running in West End, London for the past 65 years. Requested by Queen Mary herself as a gift for her 80th birthday , Christie turned 'Three Blind Mice' into 'The Mousetrap' and in it showed its first performance.

And it does not appear to be stopping its showings anytime soon. It was in one these performance that Christie made her last public appereance, at the age of She died shortly after. I would love to see it live. Birichini a Paddington Il superpotere del sottoscritto, fagocitare film horror sino a schiattare per avvenuta saturazione fisiologica, aiuta non poco nel decriptare il romanzo breve qui presente forse letto da altre parti come copione teatrale, ma potrei sbagliarmi.

Ecco, un po' di pensiero laterale e pazienza nell'arrivare alla conclusione. Gradevole, in fin dei conti. Recensione su Chibiistheway. Several books by Agatha Christie have such brilliant twists that it's impossible to forget them, no matter how many years later you re-read them. Mousetrap is one of them; however, this second read was still highly enjoyable, also because I did not remember much about the plot in general. Besides a fantastic twist which is, truth be told, quite impossible to guess; but it remains incredible!

I must say I had forgotten all of them, but this second ti 4.

I must say I had forgotten all of them, but this second time I was really impressed at how good they are characterized. They are presented with just a few lines, and yet it is extremely easy to distinguish them.

The most amusing is without a doubt Mr. Paravicini, a very mysterious and peculiar character who resembles Poirot a lot. I would love to see this played live View all 5 comments. Sep 22, Madeline K. Worrell rated it really liked it Shelves: I kind of suspected who was the murderer in this short novella, but I enjoyed it anyway. Non riesco mai a prevedere tutti i colpi di scena. Ogni volta che leggo la Christie rimango a bocca aperta, mi lascia sempre meravigliata.

Avevo toppato in pieno Anzi, man mano che passavano le pagine continuavo a cambiare idea. Per fortuna non sono un poliziotto altrimenti saremmo messi male Pur non avendo letto il racconto, mi hanno subito attirato la storia, l'atmosfera ed i personaggi. Delineati con tratti rapidi, come in tutti gli scritti teatrali, i protagonisti hanno qualcosa da nascondere, tutti. La Christie riesce a mandare in confusione la mente degli spettatori e quella dei personaggi, facendo sospettare di tutto e di tutti.

Bella pensata.

Nov 13, Tracy rated it really liked it. I kept trying to figure out who it was and I was so wrong! Loved it! Mar 04, Brigi rated it really liked it Shelves: Read for the Popsugar Reading Channel: I didn't plan on reading this, but a friend told me about the play based on this The Mousetrap , and since site isn't selling that one in Europe, I read the short story instead. It's so weird, but it's my first Agatha Christie read? Even though I've seen tons of Poirot and Miss Marple Anyway, this was really interesting and if I hadn't read a summary before, I wouldn't have realised who the murderer was.

Everyo Read for the Popsugar Reading Channel: Everyone was suspicious! I can't believe how many details there were about each character. Masterfully written. Jun 27, Josh rated it really liked it. Tensely plotted, generally unpredictable, and thoroughly enjoyable. The story and characters definitely feel like a murder mystery rather than something that might actually happen, but that's a minor complaint overall. Nov 13, Lou rated it really liked it. That was pretty funny! I really liked it.

Apr 23, Jeannette McCalla rated it really liked it. Really fun read! Aug 17, Selah Pike rated it it was amazing. I can see why The Mousetrap is the longest running play in history. Dec 13, Anne rated it it was amazing. There's a reason she's the best. View 2 comments. Jan 16, Deepika Ramesh rated it really liked it. This's my third book for 24in48readathon, and my first Agatha Christie. I loved it. Apr 02, Marta rated it really liked it.

I enjoyed it! La storia? Una lettura gradevole, da consigliare assolutamente: Apr 19, Katherine rated it really liked it. First Agatha Christie story, and I did really enjoy it!

Falls along quite quickly and I found myself spending the entire time trying to guess the murderer. Each character has their own possible motives and own odd traits that seem to say they are the murderer. I still managed to guess entirely wrong, but it was enjoyable to get to the conclusion.

I only hated that the book ends mere paragraphs after the killer is found, but that is the nature of a short story. Jan 03, Timothy Coplin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Even after reading this several times, over the years, I'm always doubting my memory as accusations fly. Could it be him?

No, it must be her. Roughly two hour read that paints a fine picture of humanities motley of personalities in everyday life. May 26, Bookish Devil rated it really liked it.

This is the first time I'm reading Agatha Christie's Book.

The story is pretty small and simple when compared to her other books. Of course even the book is titled " Three Blind Mice: A short Story".The characters re-enact the second murder, trying to prevent a third.

My very first Agatha Christie book! The Greenway Estate in Devon, acquired by the couple as a summer residence in , is now in the care of the National Trust. The play is based on a short story, itself based on the radio play, but Christie asked that the story not be published as long as it ran as a play in the West End of London.
