Agatha Christie’s 
The Mousetrap 60th Anniversary 


STAR CAST ANNOUNCED FOR 60TH ANNIVERSARY GALA PERFORMANCE OF AGATHA CHRISTIE’S THE MOUSETRAP 

HUGH BONNEVILLE, NICHOLAS FARRELL, IAIN GLEN, TAMSIN GREIG, MIRANDA HART, HARRY LLOYD, PATRICK STEWART AND JULIE WALTERS ARE TO STAR IN THE WORLD’S LONGEST RUNNING STAGE PRODUCTION FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY


To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap in London, a star-studded gala performance will take place at St. Martin’s Theatre on Sunday 18 November at 6:30pm. Directed by Phyllida Lloyd, the cast for this staged reading will be Hugh Bonneville (Giles Ralston), Nicholas Farrell (Major Metcalf), Iain Glen (Sgt Trotter) Tamsin Greig (Mollie Ralston), Miranda Hart (Miss Casewell), Harry Lloyd (Christopher Wren), Patrick Stewart (Mr Paravicini) and Julie Walters (Mrs Boyle).

Agatha Christie’s grandson, Mathew Prichard will welcome the audience for this diamond jubilee celebratory evening, which will also be the 25,000th performance. All of the proceeds from the night (for which all of the tickets are already sold) will be donated to Mousetrap Theatre Projects, the leading theatre education charity seed-funded by the play.

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap has been the world’s longest running stage production since 1958; the first ever UK tour (scheduled for 60 weeks) continues to play to sold-out houses with additional performances being added to most regions, whilst the 60 licensed productions around the globe continue to set records of their own.

Before the Gala begins, the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Mathew Prichard, and Sir Stephen Waley-Cohen (Producer of The Mousetrap and Founder/Chairman of Mousetrap Theatre Projects) will unveil a permanent Memorial to Dame Agatha Christie at St Martin’s Cross in the form of a giant book also containing her portrait.
