Witness For The Prosecution announces return

All Rise! The court will be in session from 18 May 2021. Agatha Christie’s Witness For The Prosecution will return to the spectacular chamber of London County Hall on the Southbank in late spring to once again grip audiences placed in the heart of the murder trial of Leonard Vole.

Tickets are now back on sale and casting will be announced soon.

Producers Eleanor Lloyd and Rebecca Stafford said:

“We cannot wait to bring ‘Witness for the Prosecution’ back to the magnificent setting of London County Hall and share Agatha Christie’s courtroom spectacle with audiences once again. When the theatres were closed last March we had just celebrated our 1000th performance having played to over 325,000 people over two and a half years.

“Last year was tough for everyone in the theatre industry. In order to be able to re-open as soon as we can, we are making this announcement now on the assumption that by our first performance government audience restrictions will be lifted and that contingency insurance will be available, either from the insurance market, or from a stop-gap government backed scheme”
