New production photos of Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution have been released, as the show welcomes its eighth cast and celebrates five years at London County Hall.
Since opening in October 2017, Witness for the Prosecution has captured the imagination of audiences gripped by the case of Leonard Vole, accused of murder in cold blood.
