Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap will no longer be re-opening for socially distanced performances this autumn, it has been announced.

The Mousetrap regretfully postpones the show's re-opening

It appears that Halloween this year will not be featuring Agatha's Christie's popular whodunnit play. The Mousetrap, which is the world's longest-running show of all time, announced the new postponement today:

"In view of the current uncertainty and with greater restrictions looming for London, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the re-opening of The Mousetrap.

"We are deeply saddened to have to make this decision. But The Mousetrap will be back, and a new date to re-open will be announced as soon as there is a more certain environment and subject to government guidelines."
