The Mousetrap

The world's longest-running show

A group of very different people find themselves thrown together as guests in a remote country house. The guests have been caught in a snowstorm and must remain where they are, but when the inquisitive Sergeant Trotter makes his way through the inclement weather to ask probing questions about a murder in London, suspicions bubble to the surface. Everyone denies being involved and it all seems ordinary enough until one of the guests is murdered...

The age-old question that eludes those who haven't yet seen this top-class Christie thriller is... whodunnit? To discover that you'll have to see the show; like the rest of the audience of this classic play, our lips are sealed!

Join the illustrious tradition by discovering who the killer is at The Mousetrap. London has never seen another show with this sticking power, and the play is showing at the elegant St Martin's Theatre just opposite The Ivy, ideally placed for great dining and hotel options on a West End theatre break.

Please Note:

Recommended for ages 12 and over.
