Witness for the Prosecution poster

by Agatha Christie
May 9-12, 2018
Directed by Paul Essiembre*

Leonard Vole stands accused of murdering a rich widow. The stakes are high with shocking witness testimony, impassioned outbursts from the dock and a young man’s fight to escape the hangman’s noose. Generally regarded as one of Agatha Christie’s most accomplished plays, this suspenseful thriller keeps audiences guessing until the very end.

About the Project
The annual Lawyers Play is one of Royal MTC’s largest fundraisers and since its inception in 1990 has raised over $1,000,000 to help make live theatre accessible to all Manitobans. This production is a unique opportunity for members of the Manitoba Bar Association to work with theatre professionals and have a great time with friends and colleagues from the legal community.
