    The Witness for the Prosecution play

    This play is a gripping story of justice, passion and betrayal. We meet a young and unassuming man, Leonard Vole who is accused of murdering an elderly woman he often visited as a plot to inherit her wealth. Leonard Vole seeks the council of QC Sir Wilfrid Robarts and Mr Mayhew, hoping they can help clear his name and convince the jury he is not capable of murdering a widow. The stakes are high, so Leonard's wife agrees to testify and takes to the witness stand. Unknowingly her testimony only muddies the waters even more than before.

    Was his wife involved? Was it his wife alone? Will young Leonard survive the shocking witness testimonies, or will he fall victim to the hangman's noose? You have been summoned for jury service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kept me guessing Went to this with friends and in the interval were trying to work out if he was guilty or not. We all had different views. Kept us wondering all the way through til the very end. Fabulous show. Your secrets safe with me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant reworking of a classic Agatha Christie whodunnit Let's get the negative out of the way. There's only one. The cheap seats are very uncomfortable for me. I will remember the place for this reason. If you're 55 overweight with arthritic hips pay for the better seats. Right then the play was very well produced, directed, acted and supported. Everything was superb right down to the sublime scene changes. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first play in 2019 My husband is an Agatha Christie fan and, having read the reviews, I bought two tickets in anticipation of a good evening's entertainment. We were not disappointed. The venue was very atmospheric and we were quickly immersed in the play. The actors were excellent, very credible in their roles. We had a thoroughly good time enjoying the twists and turns of the plot and the humour, topped only by the final act! Brilliant.
