The Mousetrap first opened in the West End at the Ambassadors Theatre on November 25th, 1952 before moving to its current residence at the St. Martin’s Theatre in 1974.
Performances of The Mousetrap continue at St. Martin’s Theatre in London which has three levels. While there are premium seating sections in both the Stalls and Dress Circle it is worth noting that the St Martin’s Theatre is a small and intimate venue that features very little restricted view seating so value can be found in various deifferent price bands. There are also good value clear view seats in the Upper Circle for those looking to secure cheaper tickets and although while perhaps surpisingly there are very few official discounts to The Mousetrap, bargain hunters can take advantage of dynamic pricing during quiet periods when looking for lastminute theatre tickets in the West End.
The Mousetrap is currently one of two Agatha Christie plays in London along with Witness For The Prosecution at London County Hall.
