Witness for the Prosecution tickets

You are summoned for jury service

Experience Agatha Christie's gripping courtroom drama in a unique, landmark production set against the backdrop of London County Hall.

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. The current London County Hall production, directed by Lucy Bailey, opened in 2017 and drew critical acclaim for its unique and imaginative staging in the Hall's former Council Chamber.

The Witness for the Prosecution London cast features 18 actors, including Joshua Glenister (Leonard Vole), James Alper (Warder), Lily Blunsom-Washbrook (The Woman), Jonathan Brenner (Solicitor), Simon Butteriss (Carter/Dr Wyatt) and Vicki Davids (Greta/Miss Clegg).

With seats available in the heart of the courtroom as well as on the jury bench itself, Witness for the Prosecution tickets will fully immerse you in the action and place Leonard's fate firmly in your hands.

Poor Mrs Emily French has been found murdered in her house, and the finger of suspicion is pointing squarely in Leonard Vole’s direction. Did he do it? Or was he set up? Why is his wife Romaine a witness for the prosecution? Marlene Dietrich played the role of Mrs Vole in the 1957 film version (though she was called Christine in that production). The stage version is reasonably faithful to the movie, and for £95 you can have a fully immersive experience, by being a member of the jury. Both the Defence and Prosecution lawyers are seated in with the audience, on the far, upstage aisles. Many of the actors weave around the outer stall section. However, one of the actors even makes their way onto the balcony section. The majority of the show takes place in a courtroom, and you do get the feeling that that’s exactly where you are, rather than in a theatre. Everyone, from the main cast to Court Officers, Court Clerks and even the Stenographer added to the authenticity and overall experience and enjoyment of the show. What gave it that extra, was the added recording of crowd gasps and murmurs that you might hear in a real courtroom case. I would definitely add the to my ‘must see again’ list.

Fantastic performance. Obviously no curtain but even those moving props on and off the stage did in a very clever, choreographed way. Who knew moving a seat could be theatrical? Brilliantly acted and a great story. Wonderful, unusual venue. Definitely would see again. Another Agatha Christie classic.

I’m a musicals person usually but found this story intriguing so booked a ticket. I’m so glad I did. I was hooked throughout and couldn’t predict where the story was heading. I certainly didn’t see the end coming! Would recommend

A really good production with great use of the space. Cast were all well practised and a faultless performance. You felt that you were in a courtroom and on the front row, that you might be subjected to audience participation at any moment!
