The Mousetrap

The Mousetrap opened at The Ambassadors Theatre in 1952 with Richard Attenborough and his fellow film-star and beloved wife, Sheila Sim, in the roles of Sgt.Trotter and Mollie Ralston, the Proprietor of Monkswell Manor.

In this diamond anniversary tour the role of Sgt.Trotter is taken by Jonathan Woolf, whose work includes Travelling Light at the National Theatre. Newlyweds Giles and Mollie Ralston will be played by Henry Luxemburg, widely-known for playing notorious murderer Toby Mills in Channel 4's soap Hollyoaks and Joanna Croll whose stage credits include The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd (New Vic, Stoke), Oh what a Lovely War! (Northern Stage) and Medea (Sheffield Crucible and Tour).

Chris Gilling (ITV's Law and Order, BBC1's Silk) takes the role of the mysterious army retiree Major Metcalf. Michael Fenner reprises his role as Mr Paravicini from London's West End. His stage credits include the role of Ivor Fish in Rough Crossing at the English Theatre in Vienna and Sir Edward Ramsey on the first national tour of the West End production of The King and I.

The Mousetrap holds numerous Guinness World Records including ‘the longest continuous run of any show in the world'. 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.
