When the play opens, newlyweds Mollie and Giles Ralston have just opened a bed and breakfast inn in the English countryside, circa 1940s. It's opening weekend at Monkswell Manor, and the inaugural guests arrive just ahead of a blizzard.

The guests also arrive with news of a murder having recently occurred in town. It seems that many years ago, three children were sent to an abusive and neglectful foster home, where one of the children died. The remaining two have disappeared, and apparently one of them is getting revenge on anyone involved with sending them there.

The murderer also apparently has a theme song for his crimes, the children's ditty "Three Blind Mice." A note left at the crime scene points to Monkswell Manor. And thus, with the blizzard blocking all the roads, the B&B has just become one giant mousetrap.
