This was such a great experience in so many ways - an absolute must see show - excellent performances - best venue in London of any play. Only thing they could improve is TO have more bar staff. Great night out - THANK YOU

A cracking whodunit from the Queen of Crime. The setting of the County Hall chamber was perfect for this courtroom drama. Super comfy seats, great cast and helpful staff. Don't miss it.

This classic Agatha Christie could easily have been lame on leaving the stables but, in fact, it runs at a gallop and keeps the audience guessing "did he do it?" till the very end.

The play is staged in the old Council Chamber of County Hall and is all the better for it. It creates a very atmospheric environment, doubling as a court room, as well as other scenes very effectively. The acting is crisp and believable. The lighting and sound track add well to the mounting tension.

The theatre is a 10 minute walk from either the tube stations across Westminster Bridge or Waterloo. Please note that you cannot enter from the river side of the building, as we tried to! You can enter from Belvedere Road.

The ticket prices are quite high, at £56.50 for what would be the back of the stalls.

This Agatha Christie courtroom play is held in an old court/council chamber of the London City Hall. Feels like you’re there inside the courtroom (if you book early and pay extra you can actually sit in the jury box). Setting was great, the play itself was superbly staged. Attendance/audience size is limited to be sure to book well in advance.
