Agatha Christie’s masterpiece will be arriving at the New Victoria Theatre from the 14th to the 16th April.
Penned by Dame Agatha Christie, it is currently the longest running play in the world – filled with drama and suspense that has kept audiences on the edge of their seats for the past 60 years.
The production in London has recently celebrated its 26,00th performance and this first UK tour of the beloved classic is rapidly approaching 1,000 performances and has been seen by nearly one million people and broken many box office records in many of the tour venues.
The cast currently includes Louise Jameson (Doctor Who, EastEnders, Doc Martin) as Mrs Boyle, Anna Andresen (Mollie Ralston), Nick Barclay (Giles Ralston), Tony Boncza (Major Metcalf), Lewis Collier (Sgt Trotter), Gregory Cox (Mr Paravicini), Amy Downham (Miss Casewell) and Oliver Gully (Christopher Wren).
The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.
Mousetrap Productions has also licensed 60 productions of The Mousetrap worldwide to mark the 60th year, and many of these have also broken records, from Cape Town to Philadelphia, Singapore to Sydney.
