Critic reviews

A delight. Guilty of being a good night out.

The Arts Desk

Classic Christie. The queen of cunning has been brilliantly served.

Daily Mail

Lucy Bailey’s production of Agatha Christie’s ingenious courtroom drama fits perfectly in this debating chamber

The Guardian

...a deliciously enjoyable revival

Time Out

It was indeed fascinating to glimpse inside this grand building. The trouble is that not all of Witness for the Prosecution takes place in court, and the cumbersome nature of the space mitigates against swift scene changes


This site specific version of Agatha Christie’s famous courtroom drama has a lot going for it
