This new production will be directed by Lucy Bailey and will be performed in the chamber of London County Hall from the 6th October until the 11th March 2018.

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 is accused of murdering a widow to inherit her wealth. The stakes are high – will Leonard survive the shocking witness testimony, will he be able to convince the jury, and you of his innocence and escape the hangman’s noose? 

Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Rebecca Stafford Productions will be presenting the production that will feature designs by William Dudley, lighting by Chris Davey and sound design by Mic Pool.

Witness for the Prosecution was one of Agatha Christie’s favourites of all her work. In her autobiography she said: “One night at the theatre stands out in my memory especially; the first night of Witness for the Prosecution. I can safely say that that was the only first night I have enjoyed…. It was one of my plays that I like best myself.” 

This new production has been developed with the help and support of the Christie family. Christie’s Great Grandson and Executive Chair of Agatha Christie Ltd, James Prichard said “It is really exciting to see this innovative approach to one of my great grandmother’s best plays. The amazing setting of County Hall will help raise the production to great heights, and with Lucy Bailey directing it will be a must see theatre event. This show will help demonstrate that Christie’s works are as relevant today as they have ever been, and 21st century London is in for a treat.”

Witness for the Prosecution will play at the London County Hall from the 6th October until the 11th March 2018. For more information visit: . To book tickets:, Discount, See, Love, Theatre and UK
