Based in a unique court room setting inside London’s County Hall, Agatha Christie’s Witness For The Prosecution is a landmark production of a gripping story of justice, passion and betrayal.

Directed by Lucy Bailey (Comus, The Graduate), Witness For The Prosecution is a thrilling roller coaster of a play which opens in The Chamber, and sees audiences subject to the intensity and drama of a fiercely contested trial.
