As news of a murder spreads in London, a group of seven strangers find themselves in the snow at Monkswell Manor, a remote country guesthouse. When a police sergeant arrives, the guests discover – to their horror – that there is a killer in their midst. One by one, suspicious characters reveal their filthy past. Who is the killer? Who will be their next victim?

Mousetrap is produced by Adam Spiegel, Sir Stephen Willie Cohen, and directed by Ian Talbot OBE.
