The London production of Witness for the Prosecution will resume performances at County Hall in August 2021.
Based on the Agatha Christie high stakes tale of justice, passion and betrayal, the story centres on Leonard Vole – a man accused of murdering an elderly lady for her money. Set in the spectacular chamber of London’s County Hall, director Lucy Bailey’s revival puts the audience in the thick of the action giving theatre-goers a unique immersive experience to Agatha Christie’s court room thriller.
The semi-immersive show has been seen by over 325,000 people since it premiered at the venue in 2017.
Witness for the Prosecution will resume performances at the venue on 3 August 2021 in line with step four of the governments roadmap to reopening theatre and entertainment spaces. The production had previously indicated it would open in May, however like many productions it was forced to push the date later in the year as a precautionary measure. Producers for the show have also added their name to calls for a government backed insurance scheme which would allow more productions to begin the process of resuming performances.
Casting for the new run is to be revealed.
The production is designed by William Dudley, with lighting by Chris Davey, sound design by Mic Pool and casting by Ellie Collyer-Bristow CDG.
Witness for the Prosecution By Agatha Christie is booking from 3 August 2021 until 20 March 2022 at County Hall, London.
