As in so many other areas I am an expert on this topic. For a start you are prey to the frequent beginner's misapprehension that you have seen a single "stray" mouse - the fact is if you see one it indicates that you are likely to have a major infestation. There is only one type of trap that is effective. Shall I continue with this valuable advice offline ?

I saw the play when I was 9 or 10 and was enthralled! Now we're, er, 18 years later or so, I couldn't say.

Upper Circle was mostly full on a Saturday night (couldn't see the stalls, so don't know if they were full). I took the advice given on an earlier version of this thread and sat in the back row - cheaper than further forward and IMO a better view. Also the last row was mostly empty so I had plenty of room to stretch out. I don't think I missed anything by sitting that far away - the actor playing Giles Ralston was a little hard to hear at the very beginning, but after a few minutes he seemed to settle in (or my hearing got better/more attuned).
As for the play, I thought it was fine. Nothing world-shattering or truly memorable, but nothing objectionable either, and I laughed a good number of times. It was an evening of light entertainment - a bit predictable, yes, but not tediously so. The actors did a great job - I particularly liked Christopher Wren, the young architect, and Mollie Ralston, the guest house's owner. And the theatre is beautiful.
I went to round out my Christie oeuvre, but I think most of the people in the audience were tourists. Nothing wrong with that, though!
And now I never have to worry about being spoiled for The Mousetrap ever again.

The tour us selling amazingly well. The mayflower in Southampton has added two additional matinees so it's playing 10 shows in a week. For a theatre with over 2000 seats that's impressive for a play
