Interesting Facts:

Agatha Christies’s books have sold billions of copies around the world – more than any other authorafter The Bible.

The Mousetrap is the longest-running play in the history of London’s West End. In 2019 the production headed into its 68th year at the St. Martin’s Theatre. Since 6 October 1952 the play has reached well over 27,000 performances.
