Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Rebecca Stafford Productions have today announced further tickets for Witness for the Prosecution, which will go on sale to the general public on Thursday 28 February 2019. The production, which has now surpassed the original West End run in at the Winter Garden Theatre (now the Gillian Lynne Theatre), will be extending into its third year at London’s historic County Hall.
A new cast will be sworn in from 28 May 2019, including Carolin Stolz (Shetland, Emmerdale) playing Romaine Vole, Lewis Cope (Billy Elliot) as the accused Leonard Vole, Simon Dutton (The Saint) as Sir Wilfrid Robarts, Giles Taylor (This House, Wolf Hall/ Bring Up The Bodies) as Mr Myers QC and Michael Cochrane (The Archers) as Mr Justice Wainwright, with Max Dinnen, Janet Fullerlove, Kara Grace-Paseda, Jessica Hole, Francesca Knight, Joe Shire, Paul Lancaster, Nicholas Osmond, Michael Weaver and Karl Wilson.
Director Lucy Bailey (Switzerland, Love From A Stranger, The Graduate) thrillingly places the audience in the thick of the action, with some even watching from the jury box, as this gripping tale of justice, passion and betrayal unfolds around them.
Leonard Vole is accused of murdering a widow to inherit her wealth. The stakes are high. Will Leonard survive the shocking witness testimony? Will he be able to convince the jury of his innocence and escape the hangman’s noose?
Witness for the Prosecution will be booking until 29 March 2020. The production is designed by William Dudley, with lighting by Chris Davey and sound design by Mic Pool.
