About The Mousetrap play by Agatha Christie

The Mousetrap has now been running for 68 years during which time over 28,000 performances have been given. It is quite simply a great piece of theatrical history written by the greatest crime writer of all time.

This world record-breaking production of The Mousetrap continues to enthral, to entertain and to thrill audiences who still flock to the St Martin's Theatre in London 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.... 

How is the play Mousetrap still running after all these years?

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.

The Mousetrap: UK’s record-breaking play

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.

A good play in a cosy venue.

Mrs dawn13th March

Great show in an atmospheric theatre. Seats were comfy, if a bit cramped. We had a great view of the stage as only 5 rows from stage.

joyce boughtflower12th March

MAURIZIO 10th March

Theatre staff was lovely

Miss Katie Lee9th March

Great show, gorgeous little theatre, expensive for drinks and a little warmer in the venue than id have liked but other than its well worth a see!

Tim8th March

Lovely theatre and was really looking forward to seeing this legendary play however our enjoyment was spoilt by the low volume of the actors' voices from the stage, which at best was just about audible above the sound of other audience members rusting sweet wrappers...

Alan8th March

The Mousetrap is now in its 68th year, which, in itself is testament to the quality and presentation of the works of Agatha Christie

Wendy Wallace6th March

The play itself was good but the experience was spoilt by a rude staff member in the bar. I think he should go on a course to learn how to smile and be polite. Shocking really when you think the standards would normally be high at a theatre.

Mrs Dawson4th March

The production itself was good. Fantastic actors and good set. But the story and dialogue is a bit sleepy. This was felt by, I would estimate, more than 25% of the audience who were fast asleep at one point or another! My advice would be to take sweets and coffee- or you’ll be one of the many who snores themselves awake during a very quiet scene!
