St Martin's Theatre is a London West End theatre, located on West Street, near Charing Cross Road, in the Borough of Camden. It was designed as one of a pair of theatres with the Ambassadors Theatre by W.G.R. Sprague, in memoriam for the 9th Baron Willoughby de Broke. The St Martin's Theatre is home to The Mousetrap

St Martin's Theatre History

B.A.(Bertie) Meyer, commissioned theatre architect W.G.R. Sprague to design the St Martin's. Originally intended to be one of a pair with the adjacent Ambassadors which opened in 1913, the St Martin's début was delayed by the outbreak of World War I: the first performance of Houpla took place on 23 November 1916.

Many famous British actors have passed through St Martin's. In April 1923 Basil Rathbone played Harry Domain in R.U.R. and in June 1927 Henry Daniell appeared there as Gregory Brown in Meet the Wife.

Bertie Meyer, who was closely involved in the St Martin's Theatre in the early days, and ran the theatre intermittently from 1916 to 1967, when his son R.A.(Ricky) took over. Ricky was the administrator for twenty years until his retirement in 1987; he remained as a consultant until his death in 1991.


Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap transferred in March 1974 – it is still there, now holding a World Record. The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in March 1973.
