Mousetrap Theatre Break Package
You will have a great time if you select this deal from our London Theatre Breaks section.
Agatha Christies The Mousetrap has kept audiences guessing for years. As it enters its 60th incredible year in November 2011, this record breaking production continues to attract audiences and with well over 23,000 performances it is one of the greatest whodunits by one of the greatest crime writers of all time. The show is famous for its major twist at the end and as audiences are asked to not reveal the plot it remains one of the West Ends best kept secrets.
The Mousetrap story is set in a country hotel recently opened by a young couple. During a wintery night the couple, along with four guests and one lone traveller, are snowed in. As the night draws in Detective Sergeant Trotter arrives to inform the group a murderer is on the loose and heading their way. It doesnít take long before someone falls victim to the murderer and as everyone begins to point fingers at the likely suspect, it becomes clear that all is not what it seems and soon everyone is a suspect.
Since its original opening at the Ambassadors Theatre in 1952, St Martinís Theatre has been home to The Mousetrap for the last 34 years which is well over half of this shows record breaking run. The Mousetrap also changes its cast annually, with no fewer than 382 actors and actresses appearing in the play, but has made theatrical history by having original cast member Deryck Guyler reading the news bulletin to this day.
Mousetrap Theatre Breaks always includes tickets with hotel accommodation, and the number of tickets you request must be the same as the number of hotel guests.
All London Theatre Breaks are available with online booking.
