All rise for the new Witness For The Prosecution cast

Court is now in session for the new cast of Agatha Christie’s Witness For The Prosecution, now playing its second year in London’s Theatreland.

The Olivier Award-nominated play recently swore in former Emmerdale and Shetland star Carolin Stoltz as Romaine Vole, wife of the accused Leonard Vole (played by Billy Elliot’s Lewis Cope). The new cast also includes Simon Dutton (The Saint) in the role of Sir Wilfrid Robarts, Giles Taylor (This House, Wolf Hall/Bring Up The Bodies) playing Mr Myers QC, Michael Cochrane (The Archers) as Mr Justice Wainwright, and Tim Frances (The 39 Steps) as Mr Mayhew.

Witness For The Prosecution moved into the stunning site-specific venue of London County Hall at the start of October 2017. The show thrillingly places the audience in a courtroom setting as the twisting story unfurls around them. It’s currently booking until 29 March 2020 – and you can see photographer Ellie Kurttz’s first shots of the new cast below.
