#In the Media

The cleverest murder mystery of the theatre. I think The Mousetrap could run forever.

Daily Telegraph

Even more thrilling than the plot is the atmosphere of shuddering suspense.
No one brews it better than Agatha Christie.

Daily Express

The Mousetrap is to West End theatre what
ravens are to the Tower of London. Its disappearance could impoverish us.
