Based on Agatha Christie’s 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.
