A lot is at stake in this thrilling court case and only time will tell whether Leonard can convince the jury and you, the audience, that he is an innocent man. Following a shocking witness testimony, it seems Leonard won't be running away from the hangman's noose so easily...

Looks like you've been summoned for jury duty...

Witness for The Prosecution County Hall reviews

London's Southbank has never been so dramatic and London theatre fans are just eating up tickets for this smash-hit Off-West End production. Having received a fleet of five-star reviews and overwhelming praise from audiences and critics alike, Witness for the Prosecution would certainly be criminal to miss. Come see what London audiences are calling "guilty of being a good night out" (The Arts Desk) and "big, austere, and grand" (Time Out). The Agatha Christie play has also been lauded for its unpredictable plot twists with the interval declared a "buzz of inquisition" in a review for London Theatre Direct. Just when you think you've got the murderer all figured out, you'll be left guessing once more.

Jill Prior16th March

This was a brilliant production with a lot of twists and turns. It kept you guessing and what you thought was happening and the interpretation by the audience of events was completely different to the outcome. I personally got the wrong verdict. The scene changes were very quick and the actors were brilliant, would definitely recommend this show to anyone. Lovely afternoon big thank you to everyone involved.

Karen G.11th March

Jc11th March

The performance was brilliant. The seats were so hard which meant everyone fidgeting Would warn anyone going to be prepared.

Anne Whyte11th March

Fantastic performances from everyone ! Most enjoyable evening at the theatre for a long time.

Mrs Emma Chivers10th March

Fantastic show, possibly the best play I've seen to date. The setting (Council Room in County Hall) was perfect and you felt part of the court; fully immersed in the story. The actors were phenomenal and the acknowledgement and celebration of International Women's Day, wonderful. Would highly recommend.

Loraine Lynch9th March

Me and my daughter went as it was a birthday treat it was a very interesting play it was very well played by the Actors it felt like a real court room the only thing we were at the top of the building and the seats were obstructing with big pillars but luckily most of the scenes were in the middle of the room so for the money I paid it wasn't too bad would defiantly go and see it again

Amee Uk9th March

It was so nicely set up. I had some trouble viewing the people on the witness stand so all I could do was hear due to limited restrictions to my view but all in all it was worth it

Amazing setting for a very enjoyable play. Loved all the twists and turns. Tickets were not cheap but I guess the joy of being in such a fitting environment made up for that. Highly recommended.
