Witness for the Prosecution opens to rave reviews

A stunning major new stage production of Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution has officially opened at London's County Hall.

Set in the former chambers of the Greater London Council, the action unravels in the courtroom itself as we watch the trial of Leonard Vole, accused of murdering the wealthy Emily French.

Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Rebecca Stafford Productions, with support from Agatha Christie Limited, have brought this unique production to the London stage some 60 years after it first debuted in the West End. Director Lucy Bailey, production designer William Dudley and sound designer Mic Pool create the tension and atmosphere that keeps audiences gripped. The cast includes Jack McMullen as Leonard Vole, Catherine Steadman as Romaine, David Yelland as Sir Wilfred Robarts and Philip Franks as Myers.
