    Default 60 years of the Mousetrap

    It has now been continuously running for 60 years in London and is the world's longest running stage production. Agatha Christie's play, the Mousetrap, is still going strong. To celebrate the occasion a special guest cast took to the stage for a one-off performance.

    Having seen it myself, at St Martin's in the West End, it was thoroughly enjoyable and like all good murder mysteries, I won't be giving away the ending.
    In the land of the blind, the one-arm man is king.

    My wife and I saw it for the first time earlier this year when a local theater company staged it. The lighting and sets had a very gloomy and mysterious edge to them, evoking post-World War II British austerity. We enjoyed it, but I had a strong hunch whodunit about two-thirds of the way through.

    Spoiler, please, or a link as to the special guest in London?

    Game started in '63. My ma told me that the nuns in her school used to tell the class about the Mousetrap being long running that was when it was still only maybe 8 years on the go.
