Directed by David Turner, Mousetrap is one of the best theatrical experiences one can possibly have. With the curtains of Mousetrap opening to reveal a mystery filled, drama fueled murderous plot, the show’s appeal lies with its execution. The witty dialogues and immaculate acting performances have taken this play a notch above the rest. Set in the backdrop of Monkswell Manor, the show stages the mysterious murder plot of a newlywed couple who come to enjoy the guesthouse service in the ramshackle old Manor inherited by the wife which on the face value is a guest house but in reality is nothing more than a mousetrap set by a monstrous murderer.

Based on the novel of world renowned fiction and crime writer Agatha Christie, Mousetrap entraps its audiences with its mysterious magnetism that is hard to resist. The show with its unparalleled fame and unprecedented success is the West End’s longest and most successful play. Mousetrap as a stage play that has been a theatrical phenomenon longer than anyone imagined was first premiered at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham on 6 October 1952 and since then it has been appealing to audiences of all kinds and has remained to be the most liked play of all.

With its timeless appeal and clever plot, Mousetrap as a remarkable theatrical phenomenon, is here to stay stronger than ever.

Mousetrap Review

Whodunit???


Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap has been on the stage as long as the Queen has been on the throne. Half a century ago, it opened in the West End on 25th November 1952, which means it has been running for 59 years making it the world’s longest running play - an astonishing accomplishment for any play and one that the producers are rightly proud of. The play has been seen by more than 10 million people, been performed in 45 countries around the world and been translated into 24 languages. Doubtless, The Mousetrap is a little piece of history.

So what is the show’s success?

Agatha Christie’s fame has played its part in this show’s achievement. In the 1950’s, Christie’s books were regularly in the top sellers’ list. It was hardly unexpected that a play, which has never been published or turned into a movie or TV program, should draw ardent admirers. Since that preliminary eagerness the show has now become one of the ‘elementary things to do’ on many a tourists to-do list - go to Buckingham Palace, visit the Tower of London and see ‘The Mousetrap’.

The play, set in a Monkswell Manor, begins auspiciously with a newly married young couple who has started a guesthouse service in the ramshackle old Manor inherited by the wife. Enter a peculiar hodgepodge of characters for the opening weekend of business, followed quickly by a heavy blizzard which leaves all stranded and infuriated. Moods sour further when a skiing police sergeant shows up and reveals that there is a murderer amongst them - one who has already struck once and has designs on two of them. But how are they all connected? Who is the murderer and who the next victim? How well do they all know each other anyway, even the happy couple? The English Manor setting with a fireplace, sofas, an authentic oak table, with doors leading to a drawing room, the dining room and even a staircase to the bedrooms upstairs – is a perfect setup for a Cluedo style who-killed-who thriller.

Like any good murder mystery, Mousetrap is full of culpable characters, each just as guilty as the others. The play is also known for its twist ending. By tradition, at the end of each performance, audiences are asked not to reveal the identity of the killer to anyone outside the theatre, to ensure that the end of the play is not spoiled for future audiences. Christie was always upset by the plots of her works being revealed in reviews.

The Mousetrap is one of those plays that emphasized on the dialogue rather than visual effects. The play has also made theatrical history by having an original "cast member" survive all the cast changes since its opening night. The late Deryck Guyler can still be heard, via a recording, reading the radio news bulletin in the play to this present day. The set has been changed in 1965 and 1999, but one prop survives from the original opening – the clock which sits on the mantelpiece of the fire in the main hall.

So if you want to find out whodunit, you'll have to go. It's not the most breathtaking evening but that may be a small price to pay to become a part of the history.

2017-08-19 Enjoyable, Enthralling and exciting
2017-08-13 An age gone by, clipped precise English, stiff upper lips, eccentrics, manners. Wonderful stuff acted beautifully. A cliff hanger to the end. AC really was the best at this-what a mind! Thoroughly enjoyed it as you can tell!
2017-08-12 My son and I enjoyed the play.
2017-08-12 I thought the show was delightful The set and characters were in keeping with the period the acting was solid.
2017-08-11 The show was great. The theatre was quaint but the leg room uncomfortable. Overall an experience which we enjoyed.
2017-08-09 Really good show, but if you choose seats at rear of stalls, you really need a good set of ears to hear it. We struggled to hear some parts. Seats are a bit cramped and uncomfortable and there's little gradient of seats in front, so if a tall person sits in front of you, you need to peer around them. These were quite inexpensive seats, so maybe I am being over critical for the price I paid.
2017-08-06 Amazing show, amazing restaurant and amazing package.
2017-07-30 very enjoyable experience
2017-07-29 Fantastic acting, venue and story. A must see for everyone in London.

2017-07-20 Liked the characters- loved the play- liked the actor who played Christopher wren. Excellent all round
2017-07-16 Good old-fashioned theatre. Great character and a mixture of straight storyline and humour. The atmosphere in the theatre really put you in the mood of the story.
2017-07-16 Really enjoyed the play and the theatre. location and the evening
2017-07-13 The Mousetrap lives up to exactly what one is looking for: a timeless murder mystery, set in a classic Agatha Christie backdrop. Theatre itself is also beautiful as well.
2017-07-09 Loved the show, thought the wife 'straightening up' was a bit overdone, but a great experience.
2017-07-02 really enjoyed the performance as we usually only see musicals. good mix of characters, story and a little comedy.
2017-05-29 Great show funny in parts.
2017-05-01 This longest running West End show is based on a novel by Agatha Christie. The theatre was just the right size for the production (we sat right up in the stalls and could see and hear perfectly) and the ambience suits the play very well. The set was very authentic and the plot moved swiftly, taking the audience with it. I did, however, think that the characters were exaggerated in the current production - more charicatures than real people and this is not consistent with Agatha Christie's style. However, it was still a very enjoyable experience.
