The Mousetrap is the world’s longest-running show, having opened in 1952.  Agatha Christie’s timeless thriller sees a group of people gathered together in a remote country house only to discover that there is a murderer in their midst.

The world’s longest running play is a masterpeice in murder-mystery writing and continues to find new audiences with each new generation.

As a group of people gather in a remote part of the countryside they discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.

Experience this theatrical legend – an irresistible whodunit treat for the whole family.

The Mousetrap opened on 25 November 1952 at the Ambassadors Theatre before moving to its current home at the St Martin’s Theatre on 25 March 1974.


The cast features Sherry Baines (Mrs Boyle), Liam Jefford (Christopher Wren), George Evans (Detective-Sergeant Trotter), Benedick Blythe (Major Metcalf), Harriet Leitch (Miss Casewell), Jonathan Tafler (Mr Paravicini), Ed Pinker (Giles Ralston) and Ellie Burrow (Mollie Ralston).
