The Mousetrap – 70th Anniversary TourMon 19 – Sat 24 Feb 2024
The Mousetrap, the longest running play in the world, will launch a major new tour of the UK and Ireland in 2023. The genre-defining murder mystery from Agatha Christie, the world’s best-selling novelist of all time, will visit over 70 venues across the country, including all cities to which it originally played 70 years ago, plus many more.
Adam Spiegel, the producer of The Mousetrap, said: “What better way to celebrate 70 glorious years of The Mousetrap by taking Agatha Christie’s world-famous whodunnit to over 70 towns and cities throughout the UK and Ireland. A true British classic, this beloved tale of intrigue and suspense is as enthralling today as it was when it first opened in 1952 and I am thrilled that audiences, of all ages, and from all corners of the country, will have the chance to see it in their local theatres”.
Following its 1952 premiere touring production, The Mousetrap opened in the West End where still to this day, it continues its record-breaking engagement at the St Martin’s Theatre having been performed there over 28,500 times, selling over 10 million tickets.
