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.

Tired and poor amdram standard

Two females were at times inaudible. If you have any hearing problems...save your money


London Box Office customer

Intriguing and amusing 'who done it'

London Box Office customer

Must see

Considering how long this production has been on stage it has withstood the test of time. Very enjoyable, remarkable to think the secret is still safe!


London Box Office customer

Well worth a visit

I bought tickets to Mousetrap as a surprise for my partner's birthday and it did not disappoint! After seeing it, it's easy to see how it has run for 65 years. We had seats in the dress circle, and although we were near the back we had excellent, unrestricted views and legroom was not a problem. I would thoroughly recommend this show


London Box Office customer

Old

The history, gags , dialogues are out of time , some of the actors were over acting the history was a no sense at some point


London Box Office customer

50 years of mousetrap

On our buck list and did not dissapoint good acting great story which was very funny at times with a surprising ending worth s visit


London Box Office customer

Great!

London Box Office customer

Not For Me

I was a little disappointed and didn't enjoy the show as much as I thought I would. Probably just me though, I have friends who absolutely loved it. I fell asleep part way through so sadly missed part of it. Again, probably just me, I was a bit weary that evening.


London Box Office customer

engrossing storyline

London Box Office customer

Still works after all these years.

We enjoyed the performance immensely. It held our attention from start to finish ... and we did not start thinking of plot holes until long after!


London Box Office customer

Interesting

Maybe we are just too used to too much action because of the television Bit tired but ok Seemed more like a teaching arena than a professional production But to be fair everybody should probably see it and judge for yourselves Pity that having put in to buy the best seats there were so many empty seats with a far superior view??


London Box Office customer

Mousetrap

I know it's been running a long while but really worth seeing. Great theatre, great cast, great evening out.

London Box Office customer

You must see this play once.

I enjoyed the show, it opened on the 25 th November 1952 - my mother's 21st birthday, she said it was a Tuesday. She is 85 next week.I was recommended by a friend from work to see it.


London Box Office customer

A classic

London Box Office customer

a good twist

Excellent who dunnit! Good atmosphere in a lovely old fashioned theatre. Good plot, and had me guessing throughout.


London Box Office customer

Old fashioned play

The theatre was so atmospheric and definitely is a good choice of venue for such a traditional play.The only thing we found was the seats are so close together there is very little room for your legs.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining and a workout for "the little grey cells"

London Box Office customer

Looked after by staff

Love the show well looked after by the staff My partner has difficulty climbing stairs we both made it to the upper circle and was spotted by a member of theatre staff who statedthe seats allocated would not be suitable as they was narrow and little leg room so she took back down to the foyer and managed to get us a box with comfy seat and plenty of leg room


London Box Office customer

Rubbish. Guess the killer 20 minutes in.. Waited for a twist which never came.

London Box Office customer

Just excellent. Loved it.

London Box Office customer

Very enjoyable! A theatre tradition

London Box Office customer

Enjoyable

A very good show. More humorous than I had expected - in a good way.


London Box Office customer

Historical

Although this show doesn't have the big production pizazz of the new musicals, it was amazing to see an Agatha Christie play that's been running for over 60 years! It must be done to be part of that history. It's a staple of London.


London Box Office customer

Even better than last year

We saw this show last year and decided to take our nephew this year. We were wondering if it would we would enjoy it a second time and to tell you the truth it was even better. This years cast really causes you to buy into the storyline. It was outstanding and I am so glad we went back.

Mousetrap conundrum.

London Box Office customer

Mousetrap Matinee

The show itself was great! The theater comfort was not so great. The good seats (assuming the lower circle seats are more comfortable) are quite a bit more expensive, so if you can only afford cheap seats, be prepared for tight sitting arrangements. Also, we attended on London's hottest day of the year and the air conditioning was not on. Consequently, it was very warm and stuffy inside. If the theater had been full, it would have been unbearable..


London Box Office customer

crime acted out in life
