You would think audiences would have sussed out the culprit by now, but we’re still searching more than 60 years after famous murder mystery The Mousetrap‘s first performance in London. Written by Agatha Christie, The Mousetrap is one of the most famous whodunnits in the world, having been enjoyed by London theatregoers since 25th November 1952. Its central characters, gathered together in a remote corner of the countryside, discover there is a murderer in their midst. But, as ever, the question is: who did it? Giles and Mollie Ralston run a hotel in the country, but when a snowstorm hits the area they find themselves far busier than expected. They open the doors to more guests than usual – good for business – but a phone call from the local police changes the tone. A dangerous murderer is on the loose, and all of a sudden, they can’t trust anyone. Giles and Mollie, along with their new guests – Mrs Boyle, Christopher Wren, Miss Casewell, Major Metcalf and Mr Paravicini – spend the proceeding hours on edge, all wondering where the night will take them and if they’ll ever find the killer. The Mousetrap is by far the longest running play in the world, opening in Nottingham on 6 October 1952 and transferring to the Ambassadors Theatre in London on 25 November 1952.

Still as good as ever!

After 60 years of the Mousetrap, there was never any doubt that this show was going make for a great night out! Usually more a fan of the big musicals, I was interested to see how I would take with out the dance breaks and jazz hands. I wasn't disappointed. The small theatre makes for a very intimate performance and the high level of acting is phenomenal. Definitely a show you shouldn't miss!
