Witness for the Prosecution by Agatha Christie

Leonard Vole stands accused of murdering a rich widow. The stakes are high with shocking witness testimony, impassioned outbursts from the dock and a young man’s fight to escape the hangman’s noose.

Generally regarded as one of Christie’s most accomplished plays, this suspenseful thriller keeps audiences guessing until the very end.

“Once more the Christie conjuring trick has come off. Once more we have been led down the garden path.”


“The play has all the usual advantages of Counsel in conflict, agonised outbreaks in the dock, and back-answers from the witness-box. To these are added an ingenious appendix; the jury’s verdict is only the beginning of a story that has as many twists as a pigtail.”


Please note: There will be a British Sign Language interpreter at the performance on Saturday 11 June at 2 pm.
