The world’s longest running play, The Mousetrap, is a true British classic. A tale of intrigue and suspense that entertains audiences now as much as it did 70 years ago.
To mark the 70th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s iconic thriller, the play will be going on tour
The play had its world premiere at Theatre Royal Nottingham in 1952, followed by a tour, before landing in London’s west end. At it’s home in St Martin’s Theatre The Mousetrap has achieved a record breaking 28,500 performances and sold more than 10 million tickets.
This year, the tour will begin where it all started, at Theatre Royal Nottingham in September 2022. It will then visit more than 70 theatres throughout the UK and Ireland, including cities in which it originally played 70 years ago.
As news spreads of a murder in London, a group of seven strangers find themselves snowed in at Monkswell Manor, a stately countryside guest house. When a police sergeant arrives, the guests discover that a killer is in their midst. One by one, the suspicious characters reveal their pasts so the truth can be revealed.
