Bob Saul will reprise his West End role as Sgt Trotter.

The Mousetrap is famous around the world as being the longest running show of any kind in the history of British theatre – with over 24,000 performances it’s a play to be proud of. And to celebrate 60 incredible years on stage, it’s going on tour for very first time ever, with all all-star cast to give you a once in a life-time opportunity to see this masterpiece here at HMT.

The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.

In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.

“The cleverest murder mystery of British Theatre” - The Telegraph

“Deservedly a classic among murder thrillers” - The Observer

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
