The Mousetrap

The world’s longest-running play

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is a London institution, having been performed continuously in the West End since 1952. The Mousetrap tickets provide an authentic taste of theatre history.

Young couple Mollie and Giles Ralston have set up a country guest house at Monkswell Manor, but their grand opening is upstaged by a grizzly murder nearby. Trapped by a snowstorm and with the killer heading their way, the residents and guests of Monkswell must figure out who is guilty.

With everyone a suspect, this ultimate whodunnit has plenty of twists and turns to trap even the most canny detective fans - and a surprise ending that has remained a secret for decades.

Agatha Christie is possibly the world’s most famous crime writer, having written over 60 murder mysteries and created the iconic characters of Poirot and Miss Marple.

The Mousetrap is one of London's top theatre tickets, and is a must see for any theatre-lover.
