The Mousetrap | December 2017 - January 2018

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.

  • How has this run for 65 years

    Very disappointed. Overacted and poorly executed. I could not possibly recommend this show to anyone

    I have wanted to see this for a very long time and was delighted to get tickets. I do not think however that the Saturday night (6th Jan)performance was their finest. I could barely hear what the actors were saying especially the two main leads. Molly was almost undiscernible. I do have slight hearing loss but could hear others quite well. I don't think the direction helped as there were so many times when actors had their backs to the audience. was a BIG no, no, in my day. Mrs Boyle was the star for me. I heard every word and her stage presence was impeccable; every movement she made was precise and practiced. Well done. The set was great and the lighting also. Lovely little theatre too. Having said all this it was an enjoyable evening and apart from not hearing the cast, the actual acting from all the cast was excellent.

    I bought tickets for my parents as they love Agatha Christie,They both enjoyed it very much and thought the cast were brilliant. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars was because my parents said that they think the cast should wear microphone headsets as where they were near the back of the theatre you couldn't hear a cast member clearly if their back was slightly turned. Also during the interval people who were sitting behind them also said the same thing. But all thoroughly enjoyed the show
