The Mousetrap 60 Years and Still Going Strong
Agatha Christie's THE MOUSETRAP has kept audiences guessing for six decades...
As it enters its 60th incredible year in November 2011, this world record breaking production continues to attract audiences to the St. Martin's Theatre from every corner of the globe. In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner...
The Mousetrap first entered the record books many years ago on 12th April 1958 when it became the longest running show of any kind in the history of British Theatre.
During the phenomenal 60 year run there have been no fewer than 382 actors and actresses appearing in the play, 116 miles of shirts have been ironed and over 415 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. And for the last 38 years, St Martin's Theatre has been the home of The Mousetrap - more than half of its record breaking run!
