Witness for the Prosecution is an absolute marvel in the atmospheric surroundings of County Hall.
Are you allowed to call yourself a theatre fan if you haven’t seen The Mousetrap, the West End’s longest-running play? Possibly. But I’ve ticked that box now.
Lucy Bailey’s site-specific production of Agatha Christie’s courtroom drama has returned to London County Hall, after a lengthy, if unplanned adjournment, and remains one of the most effective theatrical settings in London.
Emma Clarendon chatted to Joe McNamara and Emer McDaid about bringing back Witness for the Prosecution to London County Hall.
Casting has been announced for for Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution, due to return to London County Hall from 14 September 2021. The production is booking through to 20 March 2022.
With a charitable donation for every digital ticket sold going to Women for Refugee Women, Little Wars is still an all too rare experience – a play that puts women at its centre without focusing specifically on ‘women’s issues’.
It has been announced that performances of Witness for the Prosecution will resume from 18 May 2021 at London County Hall on the Southbank. Cast to be announced soon.
There’s plenty to enjoy in Little Wars’ jokes, and then, later on, the final harrowing monologues about the genocide are both powerful and deeply moving.
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap – the longest-running show in the world, which had been due to resume performances at London’s St Martin’s Theatre on 23 October 2020 – is to have its reopening postponed.
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap – the longest running show in the world, which had to be suspended when the Coronavirus pandemic resulted in the closure of UK theatres – is to reopen in the West End on 23 October 2020.
Now in its 68th year in the West End, The Mousetrap is also touring and shows no signs of slowing down. And whilst the play is more than a bit of a warhorse, it has become a staple of British theatre.
Murder, Margaret and Me is the story of an unlikely friendship between famed actress Margaret Rutherford and world-renowned Queen of Crime Agatha Christie.
What an absolutely brilliant adaptation of the much-loved story The Mousetrap. From the very beginning they had us guessing and wondering who on earth could be behind the London murder.
Towards Zero is a play I wasn’t familiar with if I’m honest, but if it isn’t the best known of Agatha Christie’s works, it does have a reputation as the best of her stage adaptations.
Carolin Stoltz chatted to Emma Clarendon about being part of Witness for the Prosecution at London’s County Hall.
The world’s longest-running stage production The Mousetrap returns to Edinburgh to thrill a whole new audience in this classic murder mystery tale at the Playhouse
‘The Case of the Pink Wellington Boots with the Red Hearts’. Not the kind of title you’d expect to spring from Agatha Christie’s pen – instead, an evening of murder mystery hijinks courtesy of Degrees of Error and their show Murder, She Didn’t Write.
I thank all the theatre I’ve endured that has perhaps made me a better person, but in future I’ll be asking first just how much joy it’s going to bring me, and if I’m perhaps better off elsewhere.
It was a stroke of marketing genius on the part of director Lucy Bailey and her producers to decide to stage one of Agatha Christie’s best-loved court room dramas in something approaching a court room. Setting Witness for the Prosecution within London’s abandoned County Hall becomes as much the grandest ‘immersive’ theatrical experience in London as much as a revival of an old stage thriller.
Everyone loves an Agatha Christie tale. Unlike the films and programmes involving Ms Marple or Poirot that are often repeated on television, Witness For The Prosecution (which is directed by Lucy Bailey) doesn’t have a familiar marquee protagonist at the centre of its narrative.
