There are long running classics such as Agatha Christie's Mousetrap which has been playing in London for over 50 years and is the world's longest running play, revivals of some old classics and some fantastic new plays like War Horse.

So whatever kind of play you prefer there is sure to be something on in London to suit your taste.
