ST MARTIN'S THEATRE
THE MOUSETRAP (whodunnit)
A thirties room and it is snowing outside. A murder and a stranger, add a red
herring or three, and a whodunit lasting 50 years is the result. No mice are
hurt during the run of this production.
"The Mousetrap" has detractors, due to the long run. A fresh cast at least once
a year, though, keeps the play alive. The now aged setting adds a
patina not probably intended by the author originally, but very welcome in the
current age of overly realistic murder mysteries.
It may be known as the 'Tourist trap' and imagined by Londoners to be filled
every night with baffled non-English speakers (and Londoners are such polyglots,
yeah, right) but this is a play worth rediscovering and a real alternative to
the endless musicals and social realistic pieces on offer elsewhere.
