London: Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap”

‘Twas on Valentine’s Day that we once again went to a show. But not just any show. We were going to go see Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap,” a production that has had the longest run of any other play in history.We started off the day with the British Museum, and decided we’d try to find decent Chinese food before the play.

Unfortunately, decent Chinese food was nowhere to be found. I’m not writing a review on it because I didn’t have very many good things to say, besides that the quantity of food was okay¬†considering we were in a restaurant in central London and had paid just under 18 quid for shredded roast duck and pancakes, sweet and sour pork, stir fried beef, chopped vegetables and a bowl of fried rice.

In all fairness it filled us up and it was mostly hot, so still ’twas a win when we finally rose from our seats.

Actually, we were still a teensy-bit hungry so we bought taiyaki off a street vendor. Yum.

There was also a very large candy store, but we withdrew from temptation.

Closer and closer we drew to the Dominion Theatre, and then…

Hurrah! We made it. The play was really enjoyable, and as a first experience of British theatre, this production really set us up well for another play we would see in a few months, though we didn’t know it at the time.
