The Mousetrap at St. Martin's Theatre

The Mousetrap, by Agatha Christie, is the longest running show of any kind in the history of British Theatre and has been thrilling audiences from around the world for as long as Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne.
 
It's a fantastic whodunnit play, in the classic setting of a 1950's country house cut off by snow. Expect period costume, great acting and clipped British accents.
 
During the Mousetrap's phenomenal run there have been no fewer than 336 actors and actresses appearing in the play, 101 miles of shirts have been ironed and over 395 tons of ice cream sold. Some cast members are in the Guinness Book of Records, David Raven as the 'Most Durable actor' for 4575 performances as Major Metcalf, and the late Nancy Seabrooke for a record breaking 15 years as an understudy.
