Fantastic Agatha Christie Classic

Advantages: Great story and production
Disadvantages: The kind of show you can only see once
As a huge fan of Agatha Christie books I was very excited to go and see The Mousetrap. This is the longest running show in the world that has been running since the 1950's and is still just as popular today. The Mousetrap is a classic Agatha Christie story, if you have enjoyed any of her TV productions or books then you will love this show. The show is based at a guesthouse, where all the guests become stranded due to weather conditions and a murder occurs in true Agatha Christie style. The seeming random guests all have pasts that of course become interrelated as the story emerges, each guest appears to have a motive for murder and it is wonderful fun trying to guess who is the murderer. The show has been running for over 50 years and the murderer is still a well kept secret, it is well worth the visit to try and figure out who it was. This show is simply wonderful, with a very simple set but fantastic acting and a great story. The theatre is still just as it would have been in the 1950's which provides a wonderful atmosphere and setting for the show. Even if you are not a great Agatha Christie fan I would highly recommend this production, it has everything a good show must have, it is highly entertaining and a wonderfully fun night out.
Summary: Wonderful show, great fun night out
