All rise for Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution, celebrating a year of site-specific theatre in the spectacular Chamber of London’s County Hall.
Holly Willoughby and Jeremy Vine have been among the jurors who have answered the call to consider a verdict in the case of Leonard Vole. Other luminaries spotted attending the trial include Tess Daly, Isla Fisher, Kelly Holmes, Calvin Klein, Ian McKellen, David Suchet, George Takei and Ronnie Wood. In its first year the show has also welcomed QCs, two High Court Judges and real-life forensics and autopsy teams.
New cast members are: Emma Rigby (Hollyoaks, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland) will play Romaine Vole, Daniel Solbe as the accused Leonard Vole, Jasper Britton (Pack of Lies, The Libertine) as Sir Wilfrid Robarts, William Chubb (Othello, This House) as Mr Myers QC, Christopher Ravenscroft (High Society, The Ruth Rendell Mysteries) as Mr Justice Wainwright and Ewan Stewart (Titanic, Let The Right One In) as Mr Mayhew. Leonard Vole is accused of murdering a widow to inherit her wealth. The stakes are high. Will Leonard survive the shocking witness testimony? Will he be able to convince the jury of his innocence and escape the hangman’s noose?
Witness for the Prosecution has captured the imagination of audiences who have experienced the drama inside the unique setting of County Hall’s ornate Chamber on London’s iconic South Bank, receiving Best Revival nominations at the 2018 Olivier and WhatsOnStage Awards.
