About The Mousetrap

The world's longest-running play of any kind, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap at the St Martin's Theatre is now in it's 62nd year! 

The Mousetrap has now been running for 63 years during which time over 23,000 performances have been given.  It is quite simply a great piece of theatrical history because of what it is, a whodunit written by the greatest crime writer of all time.

This world record breaking production of The Mousetrap continues to enthrall, to entertain and to thrill audiences who still flock to the St Martin's Theatre from every corner of the globe. In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.... 

The Mousetrap has been thrilling audiences from around the world for as long as Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne. They have shared Silver and Ruby jubilees and recently both enjoyed their Golden celebration. 

During this phenomenal run there have been no fewer than 297 actors and actresses appearing in the play, 86 miles of shirts have been ironed and over 320 tons of ice cream sold. Some cast members are in the Guinness Book of Records, David Raven as the 'Most Durable actor' for 4575 performances as Major Metcalf, and the late Nancy Seabrooke for a record breaking 15 years as an understudy. The Mousetrap first entered the record books many years ago on 12th April 1958 when it became the longest running show of any kind in the history of British Theatre.

The Mousetrap cast currently includes Claire Cartwright (Mollie Ralston), Eleanor Cox (Miss Casewell), Henry Devas (Detective-Sergeant Trotter), Timothy Kightley (Major Metcalf), Phillip Langhorne (Giles Ralston), Audrey Palmer (Mrs Boyle), Robert Rees appears (Christopher Wren) and Ian Targett (Mr Paravicini).

Every thing was perfect and upto my expectation.

The Mousetrap over the years has become as British as Buckingham Palace. I left the beautiful St. Martin's Theatre wondering how this particular play has run for over sixty years. The current actors are very capable and entertaining but appear to purposely overact at times. The production values are high, with a set that nicely captures the 1950s. So why did I leave the theatre wishing I had seen a different play? My conclusion is that The Mousetrap is like a classic old car: nice to look at and drive for short distances but better off in a garage. I would opt to see one of the many other plays in the theatre district if given the choice to do it again.

A must do if you are travelling to London. Wonderful production of a great play performed by actors that completely enthrall. Took my dad who saw the play in 55, 76, 2004 and still loved it in 2016!

LTD online booking system is great. Seating available better than other sites & my purchase from Australia went through no problems. London theatres are still an enjoyable experience.

As wonderful as always. It's been years since I saw the play and it was as fresh and interesting as ever. I really didn't recall the plot so I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Now, to do my part and "mums the word!"
