I feel as though the other comments are quite unfair as the heating and seating can be slight problems, but it's not too unacceptable.
The plot itself was brilliant although I feel some loose-ends still needed to be put together as it left me asking a number of questions - I suppose this added to the show itself though!
The suspense of such a small theatre was amazing and I'd definitely recommend it. (read more)

I really like Agatha Christie but this performance was really bad. The actors were not very good, the stage setting was a nice living room but not very innovative and there where no changes to it and the play itself was not that convincing either with some quite contrived twists.
The theatre looked lovely, but the seats where very unconfortable, especially in the higher ranks, the staff was not very enthusiastic and the air conditioning did not work.
I do not recommend the experience. (read more)

The Mousetrap is the worst whodunnit I have ever seen. Agatha Christie's murderers always seem to rely upon frankly unfeasible coincidence, luck and timing in order to stand a chance of getting away with it and this play is no exception. The denouement is really unsatisfying because it fails to answer so many questions about the story. The theatre was half-empty (this was a Friday night) and the staff seemed bored and uninspired. Having said that, the theatre is a very attractive and... (read more)

Mousetrap was very enjoyable; I'm not a theatre aficionado but I know when I like or dislike something and this was very entertaining. 10/10 for the play. However, the theatre seating is terrible. If you are over 5' 6" be prepared to have your legs pressed heavily against the seat in front, the seats are not wide either so you will get to know your neighbours too!.
The theatre claims to be air-conditioned but the heat was stifling - and this was in February! There was also a lot of noise... (read more)

The Mousetrap was value for money, wonderfully entertaining, lovely theatre and staff. Went to the theatre with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised at the twist and turns and humorous script. Edward Grace as Christopher Wren was especially brilliant - he will have a successful acting career, no doubt.
Didn't guess 'Whodunnit' - I doubt that many will! (read more)

It is even a thrill turning up! The St. Martin's Theatre is thoughtfully located nowhere near St. Martin's Lane (which itself is in Threatreland), but rather in West Street just off Charing Cross. To be honest, however, it is easy enough to find and only a short stroll from west end tubes (we got out at Picadilly).
The building is a charming old theatre, quite petite by some standards, but that adds to the dark atmosphere of the play that unfolds. Despite holding less than 500, the St.... (read more)
