Most of London's major plays perform in the West End, the London district where most of its largest commercial theatres are concentrated. New and classic plays also go up at theatres all over the city, but the West End is where to find some of London's most famous plays, like The Mousetrap and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Ticket prices for plays in London vary, though they average around £50, with plenty of less expensive options and more expensive premium seating. Plays at smaller Off-West End theatres will generally have lower ticket prices than plays at West End venues or other major theatres. Additionally, in many theatres, tickets for seats closer to the stage, or to the front of any section, will be priced higher than seats further back.
London's current plays include the Agatha Christie mystery The Mousetrap, which is the longest-running play in the world, and the more recent smash hit Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Alongside these staples, new plays are always coming to West End and Off-West End stages, so be sure to check back regularly to see the plays running in London now. Most plays are only on for a limited time, so there's always new theatre to see.
