Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below will not currently be playing, but it may return if indoor performances resume from or after 15 August 2020 and booking for performances beyond that date should be open.


Dates below may reflect any changes we have received since theatres closed.



The Mousetrap

Booking to 27 Mar 2021

St Martin's Theatre

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.
