Witness for the Prosecution

You have been summoned for jury service...

A landmark 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.

What Should I Expect

At London County Hall, we have various Covid safety measures in place, including a brand new air ventilation system, large and spacious front of house areas, and more regular enhanced cleaning across the site.

Our new mechanical ventilation system introduces fresh, filtered air into the Chamber. All air is extracted at roof level, pulling air away from audiences. Used air is extracted straight to the outside and is not recirculated. Filters are changed as part of regular, routine maintenance and we have full control over the air system. Our lobby and bar areas provide audiences with large, spacious areas which are serviced by natural ventilation methods.

    Excellent actors, great script. I didn't read enough about the seats that I bought.... Lots of stairs up, and the seating was on bench's, which was a most uncomfortable place to sit. My fault, as there were warnings about the seating, which I didn't notice!! Luckily we could change to the wonderful ground floor seats for the second half, which was so lovely!
