The Mousetrap has become the longest running show of any kind in the world by keeping audiences on the edge of their seat in this masterful whodunit by the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie.
A snowstorm closes in on a guest house, trapping a group of strangers inside with a murderer… Who is it and why have they come to Monkswell Manor?
Experience the mystery and suspense of one of Agatha Christie’s greatest plays, at the glorious St Martin’s Theatre and remember – keep the secret!
The acting was really good and the story was very thrilling.
Great play! Myself and two friends really enjoyed it!
We were quite disappointed, the play was boring and pretentious.
Fabulous, intimate, small theatre. We were in the dress circle but I think if you sat anywhere it would be a success. Great actors , sound, lighting, costumes and set brilliant. Loved the fact that you are asked not to give the plot away! Only one small criticism....only one person working on the bar, which meant queuing down the stairs for approximately 15 mins...my partner wondered where I had got to.
An excellent play, well performed must wish we could hear it better, we were in the gods tho but felt they could have been miked. Also people eating in second half and russling papers didn't help
Classic who dunnit from Agatha Christie performed with energy and passion even after all these years.
Great venue Great performance
Excellant in every aspect
This play has been on my bucket list to see in London... tick✔ Excellent performances
Mousetrap amazing how they were all trapped in the house couldn't get out and all were there for a reason But the out come was different to what i expeceted Very good
Great night out seeing this play on stage , wonderful acting and a twist to the plays ending that I think no one would have seen coming. Truly a wonderful experience
Took my 20 year old to see this play for his birthday, I was a bit worried it would be a bit old style for him but he really enjoyed it. The actors had us glued to every word. I was the only one had half time that guessed the outcome. You will have to see it for the answer. Very enjoyable evening.
Don't be fooled by the now somewhat 'outdated' setting of the play. This is a well-written and well-acted play that is surprisingly good. You realise that there is a reason why this show is still going strong. If you are a theatre fan, this is worth seeing at least once!
Excellent performance all round and very enjoyable
Unfortunately, whilst I enjoyed the acting props etc but I couldn’t hear the dialogue very well & therefore I probably missed some of the storyline.
We thoroughly enjoyed the play and were intrigued until the end.
Overall, we enjoyed the entertainment of the performance that we went to see. Set in the 50's, it is of it's time and leaves you guessing until the reveal - the murderer could be anyone!
Loved it-kept me guessing all the time about who was the culprit!
The performance of the cast was absolutely outstanding! There was real passion and conviction and a lot of proffesionalism. Especially for a 3pm matinee on a tuesday afternoon! Loved everything about it. Meeting the cast after the show was the icing on the top. They were just great and approachable! An unforgetable experience! Highly recommended
What a fantastic show! Kept on the edge of our seats, guessing all the while! Full of intrigue and humour, will definitely recommend to family and friends, but dont worry, your secret is safe with us!
Mousetrap was very enjoyable great value for money
Very fun we enjoyed it greatly
Great night out Cody theatre still think it's the plastic man diving into the tub
We thought it was great. I had seen it back in 1992 but totally forgot the plot. My husband had never seen it and he loved it.
Riveting story with excellent performances by all concerned. Concentrate and you will be on stage with them eager for the next line. An unexpected conclusion!! Thank you all for a slendid experience.
Really enjoyable and full of suspense and humour.
Two of actors good not project their voice even to k11 seat
Such a great play. I highly recommend it. Lots of fun too!
Entertaining and engaging. Outcome easy to predict. Otherwise, well worth the watch. Venue in desperate need of refurbishing, especially the toilet facilities
well acted, suspenseful and surprising. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Me and my buddy enjoyed it completley. All the actors were super awesome very professional. Hats off to each and everyone who are involved in front and behind the curtain.
The staging was like stepping back in time. Kudos to cast and the public for keeping the secret - I had no idea! An enjoyable afternoon.
After waiting 50 years to see the Mousetrap we were delighted with the performance. An amazing adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Have been intrigued by the air of mystery surrounding this show for years. Had a spare day in London after attending BST Festival, and decided to treat ourselves to a viewing. A clever balance of humour and mystery. We spent the interval discussing our deductions...we were wrong! A lovely cosy venue, great show, and so glad we have finally seen it...
It was good because of all the different characters, some were funny. And I really enjoyed it
Play very good, actors performed well. Funny and left guessing throughout show. Well worth seeing.
Loved it from the first few minute right through to the end. It was amazing. We could not believe an hour had gone by when the curtain came down for the interval, I have been raving to everyone how wonderful it is and I shall defintely go back to see it again. The actors were just brilliant.
Kept me guessing lovely mix of comedy and drama
What fun! Like going back in time!!!
Two tickets with a total face value of £190.00 cost £233.98. How can you justify a handling charge of £44.00???!!!!
The play, the theatre, and the theatre personnel were fantastic. When my daughter experienced a coughing episode, the ushers moved our party of four from the lower stalls to a private box so we could be less of a distraction to the surrounding guests, our experience was so much better and my daughter felt more comfortable and really enjoyed the performance on June 15th. Thank you all soooooo much!
Great show and although saw this many years ago did not remember who the murderer was.
I was so busy trying to cope with the continually high pitched, ranting voice of detective sgt Trotter (played by Alan Magor) that when the climax arrived at the end, I could have happily shot him myself. Stand out performances by ‘ Mrs Boyle, Miss Casewell and Major Metcalf. ‘ Main appeal is the great old theatre and the nostalgia of the set. Be aware that access to the theatre toilets is closed until 30 mins before the show, there are no pre-show refreshments and the foyer is very small with no seating. Fortunately there is a coffee franchise directly opposite , where you will be welcomed with open arms.
Great show but seats very swashed not comfortable
Brilliant performance and a great story, full of mystery and surprise!
No wonder it's been running for so long. Agatha Christie never gets it wrong. Strong and believable cast.
After many previous unsuccessful attempts to see the play finally pre booked and wasnot disappointed. Found it very enjoyable and did not suspect ending. Only down point of evening was legs a little cramped in theatre seats
Enjoyable event, outstanding actors and staff.
It was a great show, guessing who dunnit was great. I guessed right! But you'll have to go and see it yourself to find out! The effects of the snow and wind were very good.
Waited 40 years to see this and wasn’t disappointed. Great show set in a typical Agatha Christie setting with actors giving their all to make it a fully entertaining evening. Would definitely recommend, enjoy.
