  • GRIPPING DRAMA

    9 December 2018

    What a great evening it was at the play last night. Excellent performances by all concerned especially Mr & Mrs Vole. I would highly recommend this to anyone that likes a good thriller - well worth the journey to see it.

  • Witness for the prostitution

    9 December 2018

    The theatre interior was lovely, I felt as if I was in the courtroom and all the action was taking place around me! The acting, story and production were all incredible especially the attention to detail within the courtroom. I really enjoyed my evening out and I would definitely recommend the play to anyone interested in realistic performances. To improve my future visits to the theatre I think the theatre could have been signposted a little better, I had to ask people who knew the area well where the theatre was. Perhaps having a sign out side or directions to the theatre front door printed on the ticket. It was well worth the walk as I thoughly enjoyed the play and I am considering going back to see it again.

    Witness for the Prosecution is a wonderful tense courtroom drama performed in the perfect and imposing Council Chamber at County Hall. A really tense thriller with a superb twist that you won;’t see coming! Agatha Christie still his the spot.

  • Outstanding!

    7 December 2018

    This is one of the few really good plays currently on in London. Fantastic location. Superb acting by every member of the cast. A brilliant plot, probably one of Agatha Christie's very best. I want to go back and see it again as it was so good. I was gripped from the very first minute. You must see this!
