It has been confirmed that the play will now return to London’s County Hall from the 14th September.
It has been confirmed that due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding when restrictions will be lifted completely to allow for full capacity audiences, Agatha Christie’s Witness For the Prosecution will now resume performances from September.
Talking about the news, producers Eleanor Lloyd and Rebecca Stafford said:”We are absolutely gutted that we have to delay the re-opening of Agatha Christie’s ‘Witness for the Prosecution’ at London County Hall until 14th September.Unfortunately, the combined effects of continued uncertainty around a return to full capacity in theatres, no provision of cancellation insurance, and the delayed delivery of our promised Cultural Recovery Fund grant are such that we cannot afford to proceed with the rehearsals as planned. We have not taken this decision lightly. It leaves 51 people waiting to resume their jobs. For us as Producers the cost of remaining closed is significant and will increase as furlough and business rates relief are reduced from July. We are sorry for our wonderful and loyal audience who stood ready to support our return in August. We urge you, please re-book into the new dates from 14th September.”
