Shows At This Venue

The St Martin’s Theatre was designed as one of a pair of theatres with the Ambassadors Theatre by W.G.R. Sprague. The theatre is home to the longest running show in the West End, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap.

The Theatre itself opened in 1916 and has been the home to many more thrillers and comedies. Many famous British actors have passed through St Martin’s. In April 1923 Basil Rathbone played Harry Domain in R.U.R. and in June 1927 Henry Daniell appeared there as Gregory Brown in Meet the Wife.

The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in March 1973.
