Adam Spiegel, the producer of The Mousetrap, said: “I am thrilled today to announce the award winning company of actors that have assembled to lead The Mousetrap back to the West End.

“The production is an enduring symbol of London theatre and I hope that its return signifies the first steps in the restoration of live theatre in London. I am so pleased that these hugely accomplished performers have chosen to participate in this historic moment.”

The Mousetrap is famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of British theatre.

The Mousetrap is the iconic murder mystery play. 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.

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.
