Actress Emma Rigby chatted to LLLC’s Emma Clarendon about her current role in Witness for the Prosecution.
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.
Witness For The Prosecution is a glorious fusion of classic storytelling, first class production values and top-notch acting.
If you’re looking for a local production set locally with live music from Tony Christie, then you’ve got until 28 July to get yourself a ticket.
