A step back in time by Susan
A play unchanged by time and technology a must for theatre lovers
2nd time around by Alyson
Saw this approx. 30 yrs ago and forgot who dunnit! Took husband and daughter and while talking during interval, remembered (but didn't tell them). This didn't spoil 2nd half and it was great to hear them talking afterwards about when they realised who it might be. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The show was very good including view. Theatre was perfect for the show Mousetrap. My only flaw was the ladies toilets smelt terrible.
delightful, suspenseful, entertainment by Martha
The show was highly entertaining, an authentic period feel. For my 12 year old daughter, the suspense was gripping and the second act in particular quite scary. Older patrons will likely not find it as terrifying, but following the clues is enormously entertaining for all.
On the balcony there is no leg room But this does not spoil a great show

riveting by Burkhard
fantastic performance superb story line and acting with a twist at the end. well worth going to see highly recommend
A bit disappointed by Debra
Sorry to say we found the play a little boring. Would have been great to see at least one well known actor on stage. Theatre seating incredibly cramped, no leg room whatsoever. On second row of upper circle which didn't state restricted view. Drinks in bar incredibly expensive.
Good but over priced where you wish to sit first, complained as not as had booked these seats at £57 pound + not good !! did get re-seasted but still not good, so did ourselves, get your act sorted as will never use you again, you are rubish!!
Holman review by Chris
As someone who loves old theatres,murder mysteries and excellent acting,I enjoyed the play as much as when I first saw it 50 years ago!
very intriguing by Marjolein
Loved the show, made you think and had a surprising ending.
Mousetrap by Jeanette
2nd time seeing the show. Last time approx. 6 years ago.This time the actors introduced a level of humour (camp) and irony that gave the show a wonderfully wicked twist.

A better mousetrap by Merlyn
Saw it for the second time in 29 years. Loved it the first time, loved it the second time looking at it from the perspective of a now older man. Besides being a terrific whodunit, with every passing year the show becomes more of a period piece, a murder mystery and a look back into the vanished world of our grandparents. What's not to like? Go see it!
the mousetrap by kathryn
my first live stage show. all l expected and more, acting was brilliant, recommend to all. the theatre was so warm and inviting, seems untouched for a hundred years, may it continue to be so.
A very tight show by Jim
The overall presentation was crisp, maintaining a clear and direct flow. Not a word was lost on the audience. I loved it. The one disappointment was the upstairs seating. The young women in front of me were fine as none of them were over 5' 2". I am 5' 10" and my knees were savaged by the seat in front. I am sure the seating was designed by a chiropractor trying to solicit business.
