Celebrate 70 years of suspense with The Mousetrap; the longest running play in the world is still captivating audiences on its tour across the UK and Ireland. It arrives at Lighthouse Poole for one week from 29th April to 4th May.
The genuinely iconic murder mystery stars Todd Carty (EastEnders, Grange Hill, Dancing on Ice) as Major Metcalf and Gwyneth Strong (known best as Cassandra Trotter in Only Fools and Horses) as Mrs Boyle. They will be joined by Neerja Naik as Mollie Ralston; Barnaby Jago as Giles Ralston; Shaun McCourt as Christopher Wren; Amy Spinks as Miss Casewell; Steven Elliot as Mr Paravicini and Michael Ayiotis as Detective Sgt Trotter.

Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap debuted at Theatre Royal Nottingham in 1952 and toured the UK before opening in the West End – where it continues its record-breaking run at the St Martin’s Theatre. Now it’s back on the road, and it’s 70th anniversary tour, having also opened in Nottingham, is marking its milestone anniversary by visiting more than 70 theatres, including all cities to which it originally played 70 years ago.
In this classic whodunnit, seven strangers stranded at Monkswell Manor by a snowstorm face a chilling reality as a detective reveals there’s a murderer among them. As the suspense builds, each character’s dark past unfolds, leaving audiences guessing who the real culprit is.
Don’t miss this classic piece of mystery, directed by Ian Talbot OBE and Denise Silvey, and produced by Adam Spiegel.
