Agatha Christie’s iconic murder mystery has been keeping audiences on their toes since it opened in 1952! Having run in the West End for over 60 years, it’s not only the longest running play in the West End but also in the world!

The iconic show central characters, gathered together in a remote corner of the countryside, discover there is a murderer in their midst. But, as ever, the question is: who did it?

Last night’s opening night marked the shows 28200th performance and was one of the first West End shows to reopen after so long. Producer Adam Spiegel took to the stage to introduce the show and the audience were absolutely thrilled!
