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.

  • London without the play ‘Mousetrap’ is like River Thames without the water.

    18 October 2017

    Fantastic acting by fine players. Next to perfect casting. Brilliant period setting. Superb atmosphere at every act of the play. Suspense builds up from act one as everything looks normal and there is no sign of foul play. Simply unmissable play if one is visiting London. As for Londoners, it should be a sin to not to make a date with the fine play at St. Martin’s in London West End. It is worth every minute of your stay in the fine Theatre of London. Hurrah for ‘The Mousetrap ‘.

  • Quintessentially English

    17 October 2017

    This play set in an old building converted to a guest house was an interesting tale, well acted and with a cast of mainly quintessentially English accents and behaviour. Is not too difficult to work out whodunnit 6 seats back and centre stage
