Witness for the Prosecution
by Agatha Christie
Directed by Lynn TrainorSeason: 2nd October - 23rd October 1993
Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a British author of detective stories and a dramatist. Writer of the longest-running play ever, The Mousetrap (now in it's 42nd year) Christie excels at telling a story. She has a mastery of plot and her psychological insights into the human condition are perceptive and relevant.
A prolific author, a number of her detective stories have been adapted for the stage by other writers. Witness for the Prosecution (1953) was transferred to a wonderful film starring Charles Laughton and Marlene Dietrich. It still holds tension until its revelation of 'who-done-it'!
