The Olivier Award nominated production continues to play at the London County Hall.
Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Rebecca Stafford Productions have announced an extension to the run of Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution, now booking at the London County Hall until the the 8th October 2023.
Having celebrated its fifth anniversary last month, the production is now onto its eighth cast which currently includes: Eastenders star Harry Reid as the accused Leonard Vole opposite Naomi Sheldon (The Comedy of Errors, RSC; Good Girl, Trafalgar Studios/ Roundabout/ Old Red Lion) as Romaine Vole. Dugald Bruce-Lockhart (Private Lives, Bath Theatre Royal/Nigel Havers Theatre Company – UK Tour; The Last Temptation of Boris Johnson, Park Theatre) plays Sir Wilfrid Robarts QC, with Jonathan Coote (The Crown, Netflix; The Audience, West End) as Mr Mayhew, Justin Avoth (My Brilliant Friend, National Theatre/ Rose Theatre, Kingston; Love From a Stranger, Fiery Angel) is Mr Myers QC, and Nicholas Day (Yellowfin, Southwark Playhouse; After All These Years, UK Tour) is Mr Justice Wainwright.
Leonard Vole is accused of murdering a widow to inherit her wealth. The stakes are high. Will he be able to convince the jury of his innocence and escape the hangman’s noose?
Directed by Lucy Bailey, the production places the audience at the centre of the show as the trial plays out in front of their very eyes. Meanwhile, there are also special gift packages to experience the production available – including the chance to sit on the jury, details of which can be found here.
The production is designed by William Dudley, with lighting by Chris Davey, sound design by Mic Pool and casting by Ellie Collyer-Bristow CDG.
