The Mousetrap

If, somehow, you haven’t heard of it, The Mousetrap is a play by the internationally adored queen of mystery Agatha Christie (her work is more widely read than Shakespeare’s). It is the longest continuously running show of all time, celebrating its sixtieth anniversary back in 2012. But The Mousetrap is not just a classic; the supremely entertaining murder mystery play is a West End institution and its stupendous success has made it a fundamental part of the experience of visiting or living in London.

The story takes place in the Great Hall of Monkswell Manor, recently converted to a guesthouse by Mollie and Giles Ralston. When a snow storm hits and the Ralstons and their guests are snowed in, they come together to read the newspaper and discover that a woman has been murdered in London. But is the perpetrator of this horrible crime closer than they think?

A testament to Christie’s extraordinary talent, The Mousetrap sparks people’s imaginations within minutes, with the action inviting audiences to suspect everyone and the plot so cunningly contrived that it leaves people guessing until the very end.

The Mousetrap is an indelible part of theatre history and has now been playing at London’s impressive St Martin’s Theatre for over forty years. It is not to be missed.

    We found this quite a different experience as we usually see musicals. It was very well acted and found it cleverly presented.

    The actors/actresses were wonderful. They exocuted a increasingly interesting and fun murder mystery paying close attention to little details. You wont guess who the killer is, nor how the rest of the characters are all linked. A classic Agatha Christie murder mystery portrayed beautifully.

  • First Class!

    11 December 2017

    My husband & I had been wanting to see the Mousetrap for years and we finally managed it! It was over and beyond our expectations, it was excellent. It was a spur of the mo decision and we booked on line the night before we wanted to go and the booking was simple and easy. We collected our tickets on the day and the staff were so friendly. The theatre is a treasure and beautiful. A winner all round and may it continue, we will definitely see it again. Thank you for a lovely evening.

  • A Really Good Time

    11 December 2017

    My mother and I had a really good time watching The Mousetrap. I had wanted to watch it for years and finally, I managed to take my mother for her birthday and we were not disappointed. The theatre is amazing and has a great old feel to it, perfect for a show like this. The acting was outstanding and you could tell that the actors really got into their characters and I could distinctly tell each one of them apart from their personalities. I think it is a show that anyone who loves mysteries or crime would love to see. Something to go off the bucket list.
