Leonard Vole has been accused of murdering a widow in order to inherit her wealth. As he takes to the stand to protest his innocence and convince the jury that he did not commit this crime, expect shocking twists, powerful testimonies and tales of passion and betrayal.

First published by Agatha Christie in 1925 as the short story, 'Traitor's Hands', the Witness for the Prosecution play debuted in 1953.
