The Mousetrap has become the longest running show of any kind in the world by keeping audiences on the edge of their seat in this masterful whodunit by the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie.
A snowstorm closes in on a guest house, trapping a group of strangers inside with a murderer… Who is it and why have they come to Monkswell Manor?
Experience the mystery and suspense of one of Agatha Christie’s greatest plays, at the glorious St Martin’s Theatre and remember – keep the secret!
Loved it-kept me guessing all the time about who was the culprit!
The performance of the cast was absolutely outstanding! There was real passion and conviction and a lot of proffesionalism. Especially for a 3pm matinee on a tuesday afternoon! Loved everything about it. Meeting the cast after the show was the icing on the top. They were just great and approachable! An unforgetable experience! Highly recommended
What a fantastic show! Kept on the edge of our seats, guessing all the while! Full of intrigue and humour, will definitely recommend to family and friends, but dont worry, your secret is safe with us!
Mousetrap was very enjoyable great value for money
Very fun we enjoyed it greatly
Great night out Cody theatre still think it's the plastic man diving into the tub
We thought it was great. I had seen it back in 1992 but totally forgot the plot. My husband had never seen it and he loved it.
Riveting story with excellent performances by all concerned. Concentrate and you will be on stage with them eager for the next line. An unexpected conclusion!! Thank you all for a slendid experience.
Really enjoyable and full of suspense and humour.
Two of actors good not project their voice even to k11 seat
Such a great play. I highly recommend it. Lots of fun too!
Entertaining and engaging. Outcome easy to predict. Otherwise, well worth the watch. Venue in desperate need of refurbishing, especially the toilet facilities
well acted, suspenseful and surprising. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Me and my buddy enjoyed it completley. All the actors were super awesome very professional. Hats off to each and everyone who are involved in front and behind the curtain.
The staging was like stepping back in time. Kudos to cast and the public for keeping the secret - I had no idea! An enjoyable afternoon.
After waiting 50 years to see the Mousetrap we were delighted with the performance. An amazing adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Have been intrigued by the air of mystery surrounding this show for years. Had a spare day in London after attending BST Festival, and decided to treat ourselves to a viewing. A clever balance of humour and mystery. We spent the interval discussing our deductions...we were wrong! A lovely cosy venue, great show, and so glad we have finally seen it...
It was good because of all the different characters, some were funny. And I really enjoyed it
Play very good, actors performed well. Funny and left guessing throughout show. Well worth seeing.
Loved it from the first few minute right through to the end. It was amazing. We could not believe an hour had gone by when the curtain came down for the interval, I have been raving to everyone how wonderful it is and I shall defintely go back to see it again. The actors were just brilliant.
Kept me guessing lovely mix of comedy and drama
What fun! Like going back in time!!!
Two tickets with a total face value of £190.00 cost £233.98. How can you justify a handling charge of £44.00???!!!!
The play, the theatre, and the theatre personnel were fantastic. When my daughter experienced a coughing episode, the ushers moved our party of four from the lower stalls to a private box so we could be less of a distraction to the surrounding guests, our experience was so much better and my daughter felt more comfortable and really enjoyed the performance on June 15th. Thank you all soooooo much!
Great show and although saw this many years ago did not remember who the murderer was.
I was so busy trying to cope with the continually high pitched, ranting voice of detective sgt Trotter (played by Alan Magor) that when the climax arrived at the end, I could have happily shot him myself. Stand out performances by ‘ Mrs Boyle, Miss Casewell and Major Metcalf. ‘ Main appeal is the great old theatre and the nostalgia of the set. Be aware that access to the theatre toilets is closed until 30 mins before the show, there are no pre-show refreshments and the foyer is very small with no seating. Fortunately there is a coffee franchise directly opposite , where you will be welcomed with open arms.
Great show but seats very swashed not comfortable
Brilliant performance and a great story, full of mystery and surprise!
No wonder it's been running for so long. Agatha Christie never gets it wrong. Strong and believable cast.
After many previous unsuccessful attempts to see the play finally pre booked and wasnot disappointed. Found it very enjoyable and did not suspect ending. Only down point of evening was legs a little cramped in theatre seats
Enjoyable event, outstanding actors and staff.
It was a great show, guessing who dunnit was great. I guessed right! But you'll have to go and see it yourself to find out! The effects of the snow and wind were very good.
Waited 40 years to see this and wasn’t disappointed. Great show set in a typical Agatha Christie setting with actors giving their all to make it a fully entertaining evening. Would definitely recommend, enjoy.
Amazing acting. Funny in all the right places whilst not diverting us too much from mystery of who and why.
I’m an avid reader of Agatha Christie and was delighted to finally get to see this play! The performances were brilliant and I was throughly engaged with the mystery! Thoroughly enjoyed the twist and loved that as we all left the theatre it was all anyone was talking about!
This kept us guessing throughout. Tiny theatre, not busy. We were right at back of stalls, Row N, but easily able to see and hear. Staff all very pleasant, £6.50 for small bottle of wine during interval but guess that’s London prices. Theatre is charming, can imagine it in the old days.
Seeing The Mousetrap at St. Martin's in Soho is a must. Although not the strongest performance that I have seen, there is something endearing and enduring about this play that can't be denied. Don't let be diswaded by how long its been playing, or that they have stayed true to the period that it is set in. It is 'the' classic London theatre play and so should be a must see for all lovers of live theatre. And if live theatre is not your thing - go anyways just seeing and sitting in St. Martin's is well worth the price od admission. Oh and the tradition...don't tell a soul who did it.
Longest running show. Marvellous performance. GREAT VALUE.
Went for husband's birthday, thoroughly enjoyed the show. A beautiful theatre.
It's a good entertainment, but it could be much better.
Absolutely loved it, more than I thought I would. Totally recommend it.
I have been wanting to see this for years and have to say I wasnt disappointed at all. The cast was very good. The scenery was so well done.
Really enjoyed the show; very witty . The set design was really good. I need the interval lots of people were chatting about "who done it". I can't believe the show has been running for so long, and everyone keeps the secret!
Thoroughly enjoyed playing. Very well done
Thoroughly enjoyed playing. Very well done
The plot was superb and the red herrings were quite humorous! We really enjoyed the show.
