About Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap

Don’t just see it. Solve it.

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is the world’s longest-running play. 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. Could you be next?

Launching the tour will be Todd Carty in the role of Major Metcalf. Carty has had a long career on stage and screen but is most known for his television roles of Mark Fowler in EastEnders, PC Gabriel Brent in The Bill and Tucker Jenkins in Grange Hill. He was a contestant on Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Masterchef.

Television actress Gwyneth Strong will return to the role of Mrs Boyle for initial venues. She is known for her beloved portrayal of Cassandra in Only Fools and Horses.

Further casting is to be announced.
