"Even more thrilling than the plot is the atmosphere of shuddering suspense. No one brews it better than Agatha Christie" - Daily Express

This thrilling West End production is THE genre-defining murder mystery from the best-selling novelist of all time… case closed!

As news spreads of a murder in London, a group of seven strangers find themselves snowed in at a remote countryside guesthouse. When a police sergeant arrives, the guests discover – to their horror – that a killer is in their midst! One by one, the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts. Which one is the murderer? Who will be their next victim? Can you solve this world-famous mystery for yourself?

For almost 70 years, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap has kept millions of people from every corner of the globe on the edge of their seats.

The Mousetrap runs for 2 hours and 20 minutes, including a 20-minute interval.

The cleverest murder mystery of the theatre. I think The Mousetrap could run forever.
Daily Telegraph
A masterpiece... Of all the stage versions of Christie’s books, The Mousetrap is by far the best.
