Noël Coward's first play in its first production for 80 years. Read More >

While Sheila struggles to reconcile marriage and career, and Keld attempts to balance popular success with the pressures of monogamy, professional jealousy threatens to destroy their relationship forever. Full of Coward’s usual wit and merciless banter, The Rat Trap is a moving – and startlingly resonant – exploration of the timeless struggles of marriage.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
