This classic theatrical murder mystery is now in its 60th anniversary year. The play was originally written for the BBC as a short story titled "Three Blind Mice" for Queen Mary's eightieth birthday as she'd asked for a new Agatha Christie. Christie adapted it for the stage and The Mousetrap opened in London's West End in 1952. It was an immediate sellout hit. It is now the longest ever continuously running stage show, a position it has held for an astonishing 53 years.
To celebrate the show's anniversary, performance rights were granted to 60 production companies, with the PAC Rats Theatre Company of SSC being one.
Albert Clark of Oak Lawn takes on the role of director.
