Catherine Steadman, Jack McMullen, and More to Star in WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTIONEleanor Lloyd Productions and Rebecca StaffoRD Productions today announced casting for their major new production of Witness for the Prosecution by Agatha Christie, opening on London's South Bank this October. Catherine Steadman, best known for her role as Mabel Fox in Downton Abbey and nominated for an Olivier Award for her performance in Oppenheimer will play the role of Romaine, while rising star Jack McMullen, whose recent work includes hard-hitting TV drama Little Boy Blue, Waterloo Road and Noel Clarke's Brotherhood, will play Leonard Vole. David Yelland (The Crown, Foyle's War) will play Sir Wilfrid Robarts, Philip Franks (Art, Noises Off) will play Mr Myers, Patrick Godfrey (Half Life, MR Turner) will play Sir Justice Wainwright and Roger Ringrose (Broadchurch, Mr Selfridge) will be playing Mr Mayhew. The cast will also include Richard Attlee, Elliot Balchin, Alexandra Guelff, Miranda Horn, Jon House, Jules Melvin, Hywel Simons and Alex Stedman.

Directed by Lucy Bailey (Comus, The Graduate, Titus Andronicus), this gripping tale of justice, passion and betrayal will open in The Chamber, a magnificent court room setting inside London County Hall. The audience will find themselves thrillingly placed in the thick of the action in this spectacular location.

Leonard Vole is accused of murdering a widow to inherit her wealth. The stakes are high. Will Leonard survive the shocking witness testimony? Will he be able to convince the jury of his innocence and escape the hangman's noose?

Witness for the Prosecution will run from 6 October - 11 March with Press Night on 23 October. The production will be designed by William Dudley, with lighting by Chris Davey and sound design by Mic Pool.
