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.
