The Mousetrap, a classic tale of mystery, drama and crime

It’s a murder mystery that’s been thrilling theatre audiences for sixty years or so and it’s as popular as ever. More than ten million of us have thrilled to Agatha Christie’s classic tale since it opened in the late ‘50s and it’s just as gripping as ever. Expect a perfect balance between poignant moments and comic relief, with totally convincing stage sets.

The Mousetrap – The story

It’s winter. Five guests turn up at a rural hotel and are soon completely snowed in. A policeman turns up to warn the guests there’s a murderer on the run in the area. The guests are investigated one by one and a trap is eventually laid to reveal the murderer.

The Mousetrap – Delighting audiences on stage since 1957

The best thing about The Mousetrap is the fact that nobody who has seen the show reveals the killer – an amazing feat after almost sixty years on stage - so unless you see it yourself, you’ll never find out!

This superb vintage whodunnit comes from the pen of world famous mystery writer Agatha Christie and it’s jam packed with thrills and spills. It’s a musical that consciously avoids big name actors to keep the show fresh, and one cast member managed to notch up more than 4,500 performances.

The recorded voice of Deryck Guyler, the show’s radio bulletin announcer, is the same voice that graced the first ever showing. Despite the story’s age and fame, you’ll have a fantastic time trying to unravel the plot as the suspense holds the audience in a tight grasp from start to finish. The mysterious hotel is portrayed vividly on stage and is guaranteed to have you sitting on the edge of your seat as the intrigue unfolds.

Entertaining ten million theatre goers so far…and counting!

Agatha Christie never imagined The Mousetrap would last so long on the stage. She predicted it would be over in eight months. It’s strange to realise that Winston Churchill was Prime Minister when the show first took to the stage, and today it’s the longest-running show in British theatre, a classic that just keeps on giving. Oddly enough, the show never migrated to the silver screen and there’s no Mousetrap the movie. Why? The producers are determined to preserve the mystery and keep the story exclusively for theatre audiences.

Mousetrapped to a "t"

An excellent presentation of a timeless 50's production of an Agatha Christie classic in the perfect setting of St Martins theatre. A wonderful experience all round

Long live the mousetrap

Having only seen musicals we didn't know what to expect but with a love of all things Agatha Christie we decided to try and are so glad we did we love love loved it. The theatre matched the theme as you would imagine the era to have been. The only problem we encountered was that I suffer from a bad back and my seat in the upper circle wasn't right for me. However the theatre staff were so friendly and helpful and without hestitation moved us. A really great experience thanks


London Box Office customer

A great show for the whole family.

Engaging plot!

Old world

This show was a very old world who done it. I greatly enjoyed it and also enjoyed the insight that Agatha Christie had to the human character and their foibles, fears and neurosis. It was a show that I had wanted to see for a long time and living in Australia, hadn't really had the opportunity. It exceeded my expectations. My only advice is to not sit in the upper circles, the chairs are really uncomfortable and made viewing the show not a little uncomfortable as well.


London Box Office customer

so much fun!!!! thank you!

London Box Office customer

A real treat !

Loved the show not to heavy on the drama, lighter tongue in cheek moments without detracting from the "whodunnit" element of the story well judged acting and a great set. We went to matinee and passed a very enjoyable afternoon there.


London Box Office customer

Tired, predictable, boring,

Please don't go and see this! Do not encourage them to keep it running any longer. We all worked out who did it within 15 minutes!!! It's so so so dull compared to all the other amazing performances out there to see that it should be put to rest as soon as possible.


London Box Office customer

Great theatre great show

London Box Office customer

The longest running play and the best. The critics ignore but the audiences applaud.

All round best play in London today.


London Box Office customer

For older generation only

Don't purchase upper circle tickets unless you have a parachute handy.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant performance by the understudy Harriet Leitch in the lead role

Great traditional play


London Box Office customer

Jolly good show !!!

London Box Office customer

Pretty awesome

London Box Office customer

Iconic - the thing to do in London

Whilst the show was what i expected those seats were shockingly uncomfortable. They leant forward and there was not enough room to stretch at all. I realise the theatre reflects the era of the play but it takes away from the whole experience. Also it was far too hot. Why did someone need to tell them at interval to turn the air con on .. especially those sitting right up the back found it very unpleasant.


London Box Office customer

Fun

London Box Office customer

Good show

London Box Office customer

Total classic

A wonderful play for anyone who likes a lighthearted whodunnit. The cast were equally amazing and a joy to watch!


London Box Office customer

A bit of a let down

London Box Office customer

Remedy for insomnia

I could only bear to stay and watch the first act. Action builds up way too slow. The seats gave me no legroom and I was not comfortable at all. Left very disappointed.


London Box Office customer

Tremendous fun

Really enjoyed how stagey this was. A delight!


London Box Office customer

Agatha at her best----again

4th time seen. This production was the best so far. There was a playful sense of humour laced into this production that brought a refreshing overview to the storyline. Would recommend

Great period piece. Typical Christie. Do not be the one who has never seen it.

London Box Office customer

Absolutely Brilliant !!!!!

It was so thrilling and I never suspected who it was. Very well done the actors were brilliant


London Box Office customer

# I know who did it.

Excellent for my first non musical west end experience.


London Box Office customer

as i was born in the 50s and i love anything that is set around that era i found it wonderfull

i love the Theatre it is small and i found it a bit quirky which i love, the staff were very friendly and helpful and i would recommend it to anyone.


London Box Office customer

a treasure

For a show that has been performed so many times, the actors made it feel energetic, alive. Felt like the period, we'll done.


London Box Office customer

A bit of a let down

After waiting nearly 25 years to see the show, we'd perhaps built it up a little too much. The acting was OK but the lack of change of scenery left us feeling a little bored after a while


London Box Office customer

Little slow at first but got more interesting

I found it all slightly boring at first, and over acted by one of the characters. But it became more interesting. I was a bit underwhelmed to be honest.


London Box Office customer

Outstanding, creative genius.

It keeps you guessing all the time but at the same time you just want to watch the play unfold and not be the detective only you can't help it. It's fascinating, gripping, funny at times and overall absolute genius! Everyone should see it at some point in their lives. Ultimately, I would say that you can't go to your grave never having seen The Mousetrap!!


London Box Office customer

Seen at last

Loved it old fashioned but a great show sworn to secrecy for the rest of time


London Box Office customer

So Glad to catch it before the run finally ends! Loved the suspense.

Don't miss it. It's so Agatha Christie!


London Box Office customer

A classical, a must see

London Box Office customer

Well acted mystery !

We have been meaning to book to see this show forever, Finally made it, great innocent storyline. The cast brought humour to the performance, and couldn't work it out until the end. Really enjoyed it !


London Box Office customer

it was just amazing!

London Box Office customer

Great

A tradition . Go see !!


London Box Office customer

Very entertaining

London Box Office customer

Time to close the run

London Box Office customer

good murder mystery play!

London Box Office customer

Now I know that The Mousetrap relates the story of the three blind mice.

London Box Office customer

Easy watching, entertaining night out without breaking the bank!

Great show, entertaining and reasonably priced. Small theatre and seating in upper circle quite step but view still good, can see the whole stage just from a different angle! All actors great except sergeant trotter whom I felt was a little weaker than the others.


London Box Office customer

A great night out

London Box Office customer

brilliant

London Box Office customer

Had to see this famous theatrical record-breaker

Any show that is still drawing the crowds after 65 years deserves a visit.


London Box Office customer

Amazing show

London Box Office customer

Mousetrap review

The show was well acted - amusing and good plot. The actors spoke clearly and audibly.


London Box Office customer

I was on the edge of my very comfortable seat!

My experience at St Martin's Theatre was all good. It is such a charming theatre with warm and welcoming staff. This was the first time I had seen this play, but had known about it all my life, as it started its life the year before I was born. Knowing that the secret of "whodunnit" needs to be maintained I had no idea of the culprit and suspected the whole cast at one time or another. Even knowing the truth, I would go to see it again! My thanks to all involved.


London Box Office customer

Absorbing and very entertaining

The quirky,old character of the theatre drew us in from the outset. We were pleased to arrive in good time to buy a drink.Having a bar on each level is useful. The theatre staff were all very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly the whole experience because of them. Because of the high quality of the actors, we were able to follow the threads of the plot and could hear the dialogue clearly. The play was excellent. A timeless piece with all the expected twists and turns of an Agatha Christie masterpiece. We were seated on the Upper Circle which was fine for us but the stairs could be a problem for someone with restricted movement.


London Box Office customer

It was a very good experience and cry much enjoyed

It was a very good 'who done it' We had excellent seats in the Dress Circle' We would definitely visit St Martins theatre again.


London Box Office customer

Fun characters and intriguing!

London Box Office customer

A classic

If you like to see classic theatre. Cant be missed


London Box Office customer

It was great, I can see why the show has been running for so long!

London Box Office customer

Must see again!

London Box Office customer

Disappointing show not worth the money

I was very much looking forward to seeing The Mousetrap and took my mother, sister and boyfriend as a treat. I have never been so disappointed in a production. The acting was amateur, there was only one character who I thought was played well.


London Box Office customer

Very entertaining show

greatly entertaining show set in a fabulously traditional theatre.
