The longest running show in the world – this is a classic not to be missed
Based on the murder mystery by queen of suspense Agatha Christie, this will have you spines a-tingling. In a country house cut off in a snowdrift, there’s a murderer lurking around. But who is it? As characters shed their shady skin, the culprit is found in a nerve-shaking moment. With an intricate plot and superb acting get ready to ask…whodunnit? Originally intended to be one of a pair with the adjacent Ambassadors which opened in 1913, the St Martin's debut was delayed by the outbreak of the Great War: the first performance, of Houpla, billed as a comedy with music, took place in 1916. The venue is tightly associated with the longest running play on London's West End.
