Witness for the Prosecution


Witness for the Prosecution

19th June 2017

A major new production of Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution will open on London’s South Bank this October, in a unique court room setting inside County Hall. Lucy Bailey (Comus, The Graduate, Titus Andronicus) will direct, with the audience placed in the thick of the action in a spectacular location. This will be the first major London production of a play written by Agatha Christie to open since the 1960s.

The new production has been developed with the support and involvement of the Christie family and Agatha Christie Ltd. 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 run from 6 October – 11 March.

All tickets during the preview period (6 October – 23 October) will have £10 off. For the main run, there will be 100 tickets available for every performance at £25 or under.
