Nominated for Best Revival at the Olivier Awards, 2018

Head into the surrounds of the Grand Chamber of London County Hall for this innovative staging of Agatha Christie's dazzling play that casts you as the jury in the case of the Crown versus Leonard Vole. Directed by Lucy Bailey with design by William Dudley, follow the evidence as Vole attempts to prove his innocence and avoid a date with the hangman.

Christie's personal favourite of her plays, Witness for the Prosecution dates back to a short story first published in 1925 before being adapted for the stage in 1953. With a gripping storyline full of twists and turns its a classic thriller that'll have you on the edge of your seat until its explosive ending.

the spirit of music hall lives on - along with the spirits of doomed romance and wartime cinema, clipped vowels and buttoned-up exteriors, puppetry and Rachmaninov piano concertos - in this unstoppably entertaining exhumation of Emma Rice's greatest hit.
