The Mousetrap is the world’s longest running stage production, and is celebrating its 60th year in 2012. To celebrate, it will begin its first ever UK tour including a week at the Theatre Royal Plymouth.
Agatha Christie’s books have sold billions of copies around the world, more than any other author except for Shakespeare and the Bible. She is best known as a crime fiction writer and The Mousetrap is no exception. As a gripping ‘whodunit’, The Mousetrap has a twist in the tale that at the end of each performance audiences are requested to keep a secret from those who have not seen it!
