About Witness for the Prosecution
Agatha Christie’s story explodes to life in a specially constructed courtroom setting. In Witness for the Prosecution, the audience is the jury.
You are set to witness the trial of Leonard Vole, a man who stands accused of murdering a wealthy older woman named Emily French. As the trial unfolds, Vole desperately insists on his innocence, but doubt is cast by various witnesses and experts who provide testimonies against his alibi.
With new evidence, revelations and a complex multitude of twists and turns - you, the jury, are asked to consider the evidence and reach your own verdict on Vole's guilt or innocence. But choose wisely, for the fate of a man’s life hangs in the balance, as the hangman's noose looms ominously in the distance.
