When going to London to see some theatre, it is an absolute must to see the longest-running play in the world. And that play is Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap.
In The Mousetrap, we visit Monkswell Manor, a guest house, run by the Ralstons. Five guests have come to stay and shortly after a detective arrives, investigating a recent murder with evidence that suggests the manor will be the location of more deaths. Murder befalls the manor as a snowstorm traps them, and another is expected, but not if someone can conclude whodunnit before it is too late.
This truly is classic Christie at its finest. Everything is laid out so logically, but you don’t realize that is the case until the solution is revealed (or you’re a master sleuth yourself). I myself figured some things out, but not everything, so the end was still a surprise twist. And I can’t tell you anything more about that as we were sworn to secrecy as every audience is.
There was something so natural about the acting that felt like we were watching the characters as real people experiencing this story. That makes the show a very pleasant viewing experience. We also had excellent seats with the perfect view of everything. All in all, The Mousetrap was a great show that I would watch again.
Our performance was the 29,038th performance of this landmark show celebrating 70 years. And with the play now crossing the pond to Broadway, the ability to see it has increased. So if you have a chance to see The Mousetrap, do so.
