Jan Waters will reprise her West End role as Mrs Boyle and Clare Wilkie (Eastenders) will play Miss Casewell.

Mousetrap Productions has licenced 60 productions of The Mousetrap worldwide to mark the 60th year.

During this period the world's longest running show will be seen in every continent.

It's now in its 60th year in London's West End, where it continues at St Martin's Lane Theatre, and on November 18 will celebrate the actual 60th Birthday with a gala in aid of Mousetrap Theatre Projects—a leading theatre education charity that gives disadvantaged youngsters access to the best of London theatre.
