A 1952 play by Agatha Christie adapted from her 1947 radio play, "Three Blind Mice", The Mousetrap has earned fame and infamy ever since.

The plot (which probably seems very Seinfeld Is Unfunny given how many things in it have since become overused or overfamiliar tropes) takes place in a guest house called Monkswell Manor run by a Mr. and Mrs. Ralston. One night the Ralstons and several guests are snowed in during a blizzard with the radio announcing that a serial killer is on the loose--one who uses the song "Three Blind Mice" as a Leitmotif. And the more and more time passes, the more and more reason there is to believe that the killer may be inside Monkswell Manor even as we speak. When one of the guests indeed ends up murdered suspicion starts falling on anyone and everyone in the manor.
