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.

I have been going to see this on several occasions and now that I have actually succeeded I am pleased I did. The seats in the orchestra stalls had a very good view of the stage. The actors were very good but I can't say much about the plot as I am sworn to secrecy so as not to spoil it for others, however I did guess "who dunnit" before it was revealed, maybe I've watched too many Poirot's

Great location, great script and a great stage set. However, Laughably wooden acting. Whilst accepting there is a period element to the script (which obviously adds to the charm) and there are undoubtedly tongue in cheek moments - the AMDRAM over acting detracted from this enjoyable performance that was likeable for everything but the acting. I honestly think I saw a Royal Navy ships drama society act this better whilst aboard high seas. Anyhow, worth a punt.

Well after many years of seeing how long this show had been running for I finally got to see it, mostly due to the fact my teenage daughter has found Agatha Christie. It was OK. Not her strongest work. Not the most ingenious storyline. Just OK. Pleasant theatre, felt close to the stage and actors. Box ticked. But once is enough.
