About Mousetrap Tickets

Mousetrap description

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.

Lots of shouting and running, lack of atmosphere of old English Manor House. The two actors , the owner of the Manor and the Sergeant very similar in looks and needed to check the costumes for recognition on occasion. Best acting from actors playing Mr Paravicini and Christopher Wren. Overall very enjoyable and memorable performance.

Theatre at its most basic perfection

Instead of the BIG BOLD and OVER THE TOP musical spectacular this was a treat. Good to get back to the basics of stagecraft without the clutter of singing, dancing, music, and over-the-top backdrops. A great time for all. The acoustics were a little weak so the sound system might be turned up as it was tough to hear at times.

Loved the play itself, however

The only thing that bothered me quite a lot is that the room wasn’t aired at all, and some people around smelled really badly throughout the show. The show itself was therefore breathtaking, however I’m not sure I’d like to spend any more time in that theatre.

Intrigue and humour

My relatives from Australia joined me in watching this memorable play by Agatha Christie… We all thoroughly enjoyed it and found some of the acting performances really captivated the stage. The only advice I would give to theatre visitors at the Saint Martins would be that, being one of the smaller theatres in London it can get quite warm so be ready to fold your coats!

Uncomfortable seat , no legs room, music from next door

Unfortunately the show was ok but the seats was horrible . If you are bigger than a size 8 you will be touching your neighbour and if you are taller than 5 feet you'll have nowhere to put your legs as your seat almost touches seat at front . We could heat some music from next door, we heard the song " macarena" from next door and thought it was part of our show but wasn't. Next door was so loud we could hear them better than our show at some points, wafer thin walls. Seat are very hard and crammed , uper circle was extremely steep and definitely not for older people .
