The Mousetrap

Agatha Christie's play has been performed over 25,000 times. Now celebrating its diamond anniversary in the London West End, it's finally embarking on a UK tour.


The legendary, record-breaking, Box Office smash hit thriller returns!

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is a classic, a landmark, a legend.

The Mousetrap is famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of theatre, with over 25,000 performances and now the 60th anniversary production is back by popular demand following a record breaking sell out week.

The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow 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. 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.
