The Mousetrap, Agatha Christie’s celebrated play and a staple of the West End, has announced a cast refresh for its ongoing production at St Martin’s Theatre, set to take effect from 20 November.
The new lineup includes Rachel Summers in the role of Mollie Ralston and Christopher Bonwell as Giles Ralston. Joshua Glenister will join as Christopher Wren, with Gay Soper playing Mrs Boyle. The role of Major Metcalf will be taken on by Miles Richardson, Jessica Temple will appear as Miss Casewell, Sebastien Torkia will perform as Mr Paravicini, and George Hannigan is cast as Detective Sgt Trotter. The production will also feature performances from Clive Marlowe, Sarah Parkins, Ben Riddle, Kieran Seabrook France, Alexander Scrivens, and Cathryn Sherman.
Originally premiering in Nottingham in 1952 before its West End debut, The Mousetrap has enjoyed an uninterrupted run and is currently part of a 70th-anniversary UK tour.
The play is produced by Adam Spiegel and directed by Ian Talbot, with Denise Silvey as the associate director.
