The Mousetrap, the legendary whodunnit from Queen of Crime, Dame Agatha Christie, is currently on a major national tour starring Gwyneth Strong (Only Fools and Horses) as Mrs Boyle, directed by Gareth Armstrong.
This unstoppable West End hit has been delighting theatregoers for 67 years with its macabre murder mystery.

First seen at the Theatre Royal Nottingham in October 1952, starring Richard Attenborough and his wife Sheila Sim, The Mousetrap went on to become the world’s longest running stage production following its West End transfer to The Ambassadors in 1952 and St Martin’s in 1973.
