A young man, Leonard Vole, stands accused of the brutal murder of a wealthy older woman, a casual acquaintance who, over time became most fond of him and changed her will in his favor. The stakes are sky-high as renowned London barrister Wilfrid Robarts summons all his legal talents in order to prove the man innocent. Agatha Christie at her best, treating us to a taut murder mystery, has crafted a thriller suspenseful to its very end, deftly combined with astute psychological insights and … well, lots of tingly fun throughout!
Agatha Christie (1890- 1976), considered the grande dame of the whodunit, wrote sixty-six detective novels and fourteen short story collections. Based on a 1925 story Witness for the Prosecution is one of Christie’s most ingenious narratives acclaimed by critics and audiences as an incomparable courtroom procedural.
Running Time: two and a half hours with intermission.

In the 1880s, the epoch that launched the miracle of electricity, Dr. Givings, a gentleman and a scientist, invents a device for treating female”hysteria”: the vibrator. Provocative and funny, this play provides excellent insight into the morals of the time.
