Witness For The Prosecution 

by Agatha Christie
April 26 & 27, 2002
The Stanley Theatre

Witness for the Prosecution tells the tale of Sir Wilfred Robarts, who, on the first day back in his chambers after a life-threatening illness, is confronted by a plea for help from a young man, Leonard Vole. Vole is about to be arrested for the murder of an elderly woman whom he recently befriended. Despite Vole's claim that he left the woman's home before the time of the murder, his only alibi is his wife Romaine-who has her own agenda. After Vole's arrest, the case moves to a stunning and unexpected conclusion that will leave audiences gasping.
