St Martin's Theatre
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is nothing less than a West End institution. From the master of the whodunit; Mousetrap is with good reason Christie’s most iconic work. The only way to truly enjoy this legendary story is as a member of the audience, watching first hand a masterfully crafted piece of work that has you guessing right to the end.
The longest running theatre production ever the Mousetrap is now well beyond its 25,000th performance, over 60 years old, and still going as strong as ever. During this phenomenal run there have been no fewer than 403 actors and actresses appearing in the play, 124 miles of shirts have been ironed and over 426 tons of ice cream sold.
Some cast members are in the Guinness Book of Records, David Raven as the 'Most Durable Actor' for 4575 performances as Major Metcalf, and the late Nancy Seabrooke for a record breaking 15 years as an understudy.
But it is the play and the author that are the real stars of this record breaking production. As much a feature of London as the Changing of the Guard and the London Dungeon, it is a must for tourists and locals alike, just to be a part of this unique piece of theatre history.
