The Mousetrap is Coming to the Gaiety Theatre
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap – the longest running show of any kind in the history of theatre – is coming to Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre running from March 30 to April 4, 2020.
The thriller returned to the road by popular demand in January 2019. It has been earning standout reviews from critics and public alike as it continues to visit venues, travelling the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland.
This is the second major national tour of the smash hit murder mystery following a record-breaking 60th anniversary debut in 2012. First seen in Nottingham in 1952 starring Richard Attenborough and his wife Sheila Sim, The Mousetrap went on to become the world’s longest running stage production following its West End transfer to The Ambassadors in 1952 and St Martins in 1973. There it has played ever since, continuing a record-breaking run with over 27,500 performances in London so far.
The murder mystery centres on a group of people gathered in a country house, cut off by the snow. They discover, to their horror, there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts. That is until the last moment where the identity and the motive are finally revealed.
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 20. They cost from €21.
