Witness for the Prosecution

You have been summoned for jury service...

Step inside the magnificent surroundings of London County Hall and experience the intensity and drama of Agatha Christie’s gripping story of justice, passion and betrayal in a unique courtroom setting.

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.

Don’t miss this landmark stage production on London’s Southbank

See you in court.

    Excellent show

  • Great fun

    24 April 2019

    Thoroughly enjoyed the show; sort-of guessed the ending but not the finale. Used on-line reviews to choose our seats and got good ones with an excellent view of all performances. Only criticism is the sound - we sometimes (but rarely) missed some of the dialogue
