“You’ll be rewarded by this classic Christie play,” said local reviewer Peter Heck. “Witness for the Prosecution,” directed by Christopher Wallace, is a gripping duel between two legal giants arguing a capital murder case in foggy post-World War II London.
This production was generously sponsored by Foam Works, LLC, and Heck assures audiences it is “well worth seeing.”
Based on a 1925 short story she later adapted for the stage, Agatha Christie’s “Witness for the Prosecution” has been delighting and perplexing audiences for almost a century.
Simple man Leonard Vole has been accused of murder, but there are countless questions without answers for this capital charge. Christie provides both red herrings and legitimate clues, so audiences need to pay careful attention as they reach their own conclusions about Vole’s guilt or innocence.
This drama would be an excellent introduction to live theater for middle schoolers and teens, but smaller children might have trouble following the courtroom repartee.
The Peake Players present “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” April 7-9 in Todd Performing Arts Center. Cast members: Anna Terry, Shannon Landers, Brian White, Jacob Wheatley, Will Alderson, Sebastian Rosario and Lydia Walbert.
