Mousetrap Information

Agatha Christie's legendary 'whodunit' is still delighting and thrilling audiences in London's West End, as the show enters its 65th record-breaking year on stage. Running at the St. Martin's Theatre since 1974, the original production opened across the road at the Ambassadors Theatre on 25 November 1952 and has since been presented in 27 different languages in more than 50 countries around the world.

"A group of people gathered in a remote part of the countryside 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. A cracking yarn and an irresistible treat for amateur sleuths everywhere!"

The world's longest running show, The Mousetrap now has three entries in the Guinness Book of Records, including those for the longest continuous run of any show in the world, the 'most durable' actor (David Raven, who played Major Metcalf for 4,575 performances) and 'longest serving understudy' (Nancy Seabrooke, who stood by as Mrs Boyle 6,240 times). Since The Mousetrap opened 450 actors and actresses have appeared in the play alongside 260 understudies, with a new cast joining the show every nine months.

Agatha Christie became a Dame of the British Empire in 1971; her books have sold billions of copies around the world - more than any other author, after The Bible. She died on the 12th January 1976 aged 85 after giving the rights to the stage play to her nine-year old grandson Mathew Prichard.

The play was originally produced by Peter Saunders who handed over responsibility for the show in 1994 to Mousetrap Productions, under the management of Sir Stephen Waley-Cohen.

Visitors from all over the world watch The Mousetrap each week and become part of the historic story of the show, keeping the secret of the plot.
