Trivial Pursuit question: what is the longest running continuous play in the world?
Answer: Mousetrap. 58 years non stop.
We couldn't come to London without going to see Mousetrap!!! Had another victory here as we bought the cheapest tickets possible (right up the back) and, being a Monday night which is a quiet night, we were allowed to fill up the seats down the front (3rd row). Yes!!
The play was great. A typical Agatha Christie murder mystery. During the curtain calls for each of the perfromances over the past 58 years, the audience is sworn to secrecy and so sadly I cannot divulge the murderer.
Unfortunatley the man in front of us seemed to have a sneezing problem- really 'splattery' sneezes. He continued throughout the entire play and appeared to choose all the crtical and quiet moments to 'splat' everwhere.
