About Witness for the Prosecution

YOU HAVE BEEN SUMMONED FOR JURY SERVICE…

Now in its seventh year, Witness for the Prosecution has captured the imagination of thousands; enthralled by the case of Leonard Vole.

Accused of murdering a widow to inherit her wealth, will Leonard survive the shocking witness testimony? Will he be able to convince the jury, and you, of his innocence and escape the hangman’s noose?

The audience are thrillingly placed in the thick of the action, as Agatha Christie’s story of justice, passion and betrayal unfolds around them. The twists and turns of the case are played out in a spectacular courtroom setting, as prosecution battles defence, and witnesses take to the stand to give their shocking testimonies.

Don’t miss this landmark stage production on London’s South Bank.

SEE YOU IN COURT.
