The first images of the cast for the new production of Agatha Christie’s classic story have been released ahead of the production opening for previews this Friday.
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?
Directed by Lucy Bailey (Comus, The Graduate, Titus Andronicus), Witness for the Prosecution will be performed in The Chamber, a magnificent court room setting inside London County Hall, ensuring that the audiences feel as close to the action as possible.
The production is set to star Catherine Steadman, best known for her role as Mabel Fox in Downton Abbey will play the role of Romaine, while rising star Jack McMullen, whose recent work includes hard-hitting TV drama Little Boy Blue, Waterloo Road and Noel Clarke’s Brotherhood, will play Leonard Vole.
