This new production of Witness for the Prosecution is directed by Lucy Bailey and will place the audience in the centre of the action within the courtroom where we are summoned for jury service at a trail in which Leonard Vole is accused of murdering a widow, Emily French, a wealthy older woman, to inherit her wealth.

The stakes are high – will Leonard survive the shocking witness testimony, will he be able to convince the jury and you of his innocence and escape the hangman’s noose? Unaware that he was a married man, Miss French had made him her principal heir, casting suspicion on Leonard. When his wife, Romaine, agrees to testify, she does so not in Leonard’s defence but as a witness for the prosecution.

Romaine’s decision is part of a complicated plan to free her husband. She first gives the prosecution its strongest evidence, then fabricates new evidence that discredits her testimony, believing, correctly as it turns out, that her impeachment as an unfaithful wife would improve Leonard’s chances of acquittal far more than her testimony for the defence.

According to her autobiography, this was one of Agatha Christie’s favourites of all her works, stating: “One night at the theatre stands out in my memory especially; the first night of Witness for the Prosecution”.
