The Mousetrap, a classic murder mystery play now in its 60th year in London’s West End, comes to the theatre from Monday until Saturday, September 29.

The murder fuelled thriller has a twist to the ending, which the audience are traditionally asked not to reveal after leaving the theatre.

For the first leg of the tour the cast will include: Steven France (Eastenders, The Bill) as Christopher Wren, Thomas Howes (Downton Abbey, The History Boys (National Theatre UK Tour) as Sgt 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 and Jemma Walker (Family Affairs, Eastenders) as Mollie Ralston.

Jan Waters will reprise her west end role as Mrs Boyle and Clare Wilkie (Eastenders) will play Miss Casewell.

The show takes place Monday to Saturday evenings from 7.30pm, Wednesday and Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost £10 to £27 (premium seats available).
