Witness for the Prosecution

You have been summoned for jury service...

A landmark new stage production of Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution takes place in London County Hall, planting audiences right in the centre of this gripping story of justice, passion, and betrayal.

Leonard Vole stands accused of murdering a widow in order to inherit her wealth, and the stakes are high: convince the jury – and the audience – of his innocence, or face the hangman’s noose. That is, after he’s survived the shocking witness testimony.

This production immerses the audience in a unique courtroom setting, complete with drama and intensity, on London’s Southbank.

See you in court.

  • Well worth the effort

    16 December 2018

    Very much enjoyed this show, well enacted and faithful to the page. The star of the show though was the venue. Formally The Chamber of the now defunct GLC, it has been turned into the Old Bailey with lovely and comfortable seating around the stage. The audience feels part of it as actors arrive and leave "court" via the audience's own entrance doors at the top and walk down and up through them. All round an excellent experience.
