Agatha Christie's thrilling courtroom drama, Witness for the Prosecution, officially opened in central London on 23rd October 2017 in the spectacular setting of London County Hall. The play, produced by Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Rebecca Stafford Productions, has been closed due to government restrictions in the last few months but we are delighted to announce that it will open again on 14th September 2021. Lucy Bailey directs this gripping tale of justice, passion and betrayal, with the audience thrillingly placed in the thick of the action.

Lucy Bailey’s production of this play has now been seen by more than a quarter of a million audience members over 815 performances.
