Review: Witness for the Prosecution in 250 words - Court is now in session!
I have been summoned for Jury Service.
Taking my place in the Jury seats at the palatial County Hall, I settle down for another whodunnit from the wonderful Agatha Christie, whose well known West End play, The Mousetrap is London’s longest-running show (which you'll also want tickets for). Being a legal eagle myself, I was interested to see how this would ‘play’ out and if I would be able to differentiate between the innocent and the guilty.

London Theatre Review: Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution at London County Hall
Just a quick hop over the river from the West End, in the shadow of the London Eye, you will find London County Hall where Witness for the Prosecution is currently staged. The former home of London County Council, the building now hosts the Aquarium, London Dungeons and a couple of hotels. Nestled in the heart of the building is the former meeting room – the Edwardian chamber – with its fixed wooden seating, striking marble columns, high ceiling, and ornate fittings, now providing the setting for one of the world’s most famous author's plays.

London Theatre Review: Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, London in Southbank
Agatha Christie plays are seemingly impossible to write about. Not because they're bad, but because the audiences are sworn not to reveal anything. In fact, as you leave County Hall after a performance of the incredible Witness for the Prosecution, a sign stands in the foyer with the simple phrase: #SwornToSecrecy

London Theatre Review: Witness for the Prosecution at London County Hall
The venue for Witness for the Prosecution – the Edwardian Baroque-style London County Hall – is as much a star as the play's key protagonists. The Council Chamber makes the perfect setting for this courtroom drama to unfold, having been built nearly 3 years before Agatha Christie published the short story of the same name back in 1925. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this psychological thriller, which was marvellously adapted into a stage play by Agatha Christie herself and first performed in 1953.

Witness for the Prosecution
Witness for the Prosecution is certainly a play that sells itself and is something that will be spread via word of mouth because there is not one person that left the courtroom (yes, actual courtroom) that wasn’t absolutely thrilled by the outstanding production they had just seen. If you’re on the look out for a play that’s a little different then this will certainly peak your interest. Being set in County Hall’s actual courtroom truly sets this play up to be unforgettable and is the perfect way to have you feeling completely immersed.
