October 31, 2012
For more than 50 years, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap has been the longest running show of any kind in the world.
To celebrate its 60th anniversary this legendary thriller embarks on its first ever UK tour, coming to the New Victoria Theatre, Woking from Monday to Saturday November 12 to 17.
With writing like no other, Dame Agatha Christie creates such intriguing characters coupled with an atmosphere of shuddering suspense making a classic murder-mystery that draws you in from the very start and grips you to the end.
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 motives are finally revealed.
The stellar line up of cast are Steven France (Eastenders, The Bill) as Christopher Wren, Thomas Howes (Downton Abbey, The History Boys (National Theatre UK Tour)) as Sergeant Trotter, Karl Howman (Brush Strokes) as Mr Paravicini, Bruno Langley (Coronation Street, Doctor Who) as Giles Ralston, Graham Seed (Yes, Prime Minister UK Tour, BBC Radio 4’s The Archers) as Major Metcalf, Jemma Walker (Family Affairs, Eastenders) as Mollie Ralston, Jan Waters reprises her west end role as Mrs Boyle and Clare Wilkie (Eastenders) as Miss Casewell.
To mark the 60th year, Mousetrap Productions has licensed 60 productions of The Mousetrap world-wide.
During this period the world’s longest running show will be seen in every continent, with professional productions scheduled for Australia, China, Korea, Turkey, South Africa, Russia, Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Poland, Spain, Scandinavia, Venezuela, across the United States and Canada.
