There are hundreds of theatres in uk of all size and shapes. Rarely is there an opportunity to stage a play in pretty much the right environment that is not a theatre. Here is such a thing .
County Hall was the Home to Greater London Council for many years and is a large grand building that sits in the shadow of the Houses of Parliament and London Eye. The main chamber is a rather grand and legal looking room with plush large seats and superb acoustics that lend to a specific theatrical performance. This staging of Witness for the Prosecution is such a play. An Agatha Christie book that has been staged in many theatres since 1953.
The show was beyond brilliant . The acting and staging quite unique giving it a real courtroom feel. The audience are spellbound for 2 hours. All the actors deserve plaudits but David Yelland as the defence counsel and Catherine Steadman as the wife of the defendant really steal the show.
Tickets are really very cheap and can be sourced online for 37.50£ easily. Just go along. A unique and remarkable staged production
