About Witness for the Prosecution

Consider this your call for jury service. It’s down to you to decide the fate of one man in court. Choose if they’re innocent or guilty by booking Witness for the Prosecution tickets on TodayTix.

This uniquely staged version of Witness for the Prosecution play combines all the thrills of an Agatha Christie mystery with real-life courtrooms. London County Hall provides the perfect setting for this story to unfold.

Once you step inside the old council chambers, you’ll be dropped into the middle of a fast-paced murder mystery. There’s plenty of unexpected twists and shocking revelations, especially when an unexpecting witness is called to the stand.

London Theatre raved about the play’s authenticity, saying “This new production of her play focuses on that courtroom element, transforming London County Hall into the historic Old Bailey.”

Prior to the court case, Leonard Vole befriends a rich old lady and as per her will, inherits her wealth when she unexpectedly dies. Vole pleads his case in court, with his wife, Romaine, giving evidence for the opposing side and refusing to support his alibi.

Whose side is Romaine really on? Could this all just be part of a complex plan to prove her husband’s innocence? And can Leonard survive the testimonies made against him? In the end, the jury decides… it’s up to you! So, see you in court.

More information about Witness for the Prosecution

It’s not often that you can watch a play within a council chamber. London County Hall is the ideal setting for the Witness for the Prosecution London courtroom drama. Thanks to Lucy Bailey's direction and William Dudley's design, you’ll feel like you are watching a real trial unfold.

Agatha Christie was hailed as the ‘Queen of Crime’. Her Witness for the Prosecution was one of her prized works. In her autobiography, she stated that the first night of Witness for the Prosecution was one of her favourite memories at the theatre. Agatha Christie’s gripping story of justice, passion, and betrayal now comes alive in the 21st century.

What to Watch For:

  • County Hall served as the headquarters of London County Council and the Greater London Council for 64 years. It provided seating for over 200 council members and four galleries for the public and members of the press.
  • Agatha Christie wrote the short story. The story was previously called Traitor's Hands. There’s two Agatha Christie plays in London: Witness for the Prosecution and The Mousetrap.
