Initial actors to star in the reopening cast for Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution in London have been named, ahead of performances resuming later this year. Witness for the Prosecution is back at London County Hall from 14 September.

Joe McNamara will make his stage debut as Leonard Vole, alongside Emer Mcdaid as Romaine, Jonathan Firth as Sir Wilfrid Robarts, Teddy Kempner as Mr Mayhew, Miles Richardson as Mr Myers and Martin Turner as Mr Justice Wainwright.

Christopher Dickins, Nicholas Fretwell, Yvonne Gidden, Sam Graham, Eliot Giuralarocca, Ellie-Rose Mackinlay and Elana Martin will also appear in Witness for the Prosecution. The full cast is to be announced.

Witness for the Prosecution is a courtroom drama that centres on Leonard Vole who is accused of murder. As the case proceeds, his wife Romaine is called to the stand, but testifies for the prosecution, speaking out against her husband.

Witness for the Prosecution began performances at the real-life court room London County Hall in 2017, with the production “transforming London County Hall into the historic Old Bailey. And it steps up to the job. The set truly immerses you in the setting, with the bench and witness box at one end with the audience sat in a horseshoe in the public gallery, with some sat in the jury’s seats." 

Lucy Bailey directs Witness for the Prosecution, with scenic design by William Dudley, lighting design by Chris Davey and sound design by Mic Pool.

Two Agatha Christie plays currently run in London; Witness for the Prosecution at London County Hall and The Mousetrap at St. Martin’s Theatre.
