A true masterpiece and British institution, there is no theatrical experience quite like Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap.
An attraction in its own right it was first performed in London’s West End in 1952. Despite Christie herself believing it would only last a matter of months it went on became the longest-running show in British theatre history as early as 1958.
Little did they know back then that it would still be going strong 60 years later and taking its surprises to new audiences with its first ever UK tour.
Part of the show’s appeal is of course the fact that it’s one of Agatha Christie’s most famous works. The creator behind some of the most famous detectives including Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, she is the undisputed Queen of Crime.
