Went for a birthday trip, been looking forward to it for years and we weren't disappointed. Despite the age of the production, it was fresh with no staleness anywhere. I can't say more but it's a classic and a must see...

On Saturday 29th February 2020 I booked 2 tickets for me and my partner to watch the Mousetrap live in the theatre. Unfortunately me and my partner had a really bad experience watching the show. We sat in the upper circle on row E seats 16 and 17.  The theatre is old and the row is very narrow anyway so there is not much leg room. The seats in front of us were loose and kept bending backwards every time the person in front sitting there leant backwards or got up to let the person in front of us out. Unfortunately especially in the second act the seat went backwards and hit my partner’s knees very hard because the seat was loose. There was a about 15 minutes left of the play after this so we could not move seats at that time but my partner suffered pain and was hurt.  I am a doctor working for the NHS and I was really disappointed to see that health and safety had been passed for the theatre on the upper circle row as the upper circle row was extremely narrow anyway and therefore was a health hazard for people buying seats there with loose seats in front of them especially row E seats 16 and 17 where we were sitting. I am quite short for a man at 5 foot 5 and if I was taller I would have had serious difficulty sitting down due to leg room and could have been seriously hurt with the loose seats in front.  After the show we asked to speak the manager who said she would have moved us to the box In the interval and that all we could do is write to someone called Demian and that she could not do anything for us such as reimbursing some of the money for ticket and disappointingly all she stated was ‘ if you’d told me sooner I would have moved you to a free seat’.  This was a disappointing response as during the first act, the person sitting in front of my partner was not in her seat for the most part of it. Therefore she didn’t get hurt until the second act where her knees were hit on at least three occasions in the second act.  As a doctor working in the NHS for 14 years since 2006, caring about people’s health and safety, I would advise anyone not to book the Mouse Trap to sit in the upper circles particularly in row E seats 16 and 17. This can definitely  cause serious injury when the people in front get up suddenly and their seats which are hard wooden seats come straight into the front of your knees. I am therefore extremely sad this this occurred and my partner left in some pain and would like to raise this as a serious issue not just because it affected our experience but for the health and safety of other unsuspecting theatre goers in the future to the Moustrap.

I went to a play called the mousetrap by Agatha Christie. It was a traditional crime play and I loved it. I really liked trying to geus who was the killer and the final big twist suprised me. I think the only thing that could have made it better would be if it gave you more of a hint of who the killer was. I learnt that I love crime plays and it inspired me to read Agatha Christie novels. I would definitely recommend this play as it is suitable for all ages and is very enjoyable to watch.

A really old theatre but with a vintage charm. Not as flash as some but we loved it. I'm not a massive agatha Christie fan but still really enjoyed. I guessed the killer too! Makes a change....

Excellent murder mystery play and no wonder it has been running so long and set in a lovely intimate theatre. The only disappointment was in the first half the couple in front of us were nattering. The actors aren't (or didn't seem to be) "miked up" and at times it was difficult ti hear. Thankfully in the second half the noisy couple had left. Fantastic ending but obviously can't tell you who done it!
