Five plays/musicals that may never die

Just because they have been on a long time does not mean they are good.

The Mousetrap

It’s classic Agatha Christie, a murder in a manor house with all the usual characters.

It started before we were born.

We could tell you who the murderer is but (a) we’re not supposed to and (b) it’s pretty obvious.

But it is better than you might expect.

The Play That Goes Wrong

It’s classic Agatha Christie… oh hang on, no, it’s a spoof, by an ‘amateur’ company.

We think it’s a hoot, and it has one of the funniest jokes we have seen on the stage, but we know people who hate it. “All those things could never happen”, someone said once. And that’s really the whole joke.
