This was good. A Drama for sure - Agatha Christie at her best. Staging was perfect - in the Old London Town Hall - in a real courtroom - how can it get any better? Play dragged just a bit mid way, but the end...More

I have seen this twice, with different companions, it is a great setting - you will believe you are in a courtroom. The acting is superb. Front row very centre of the gallery is a great view (though not especially comfortable) and lots of stairs,...More

We were captivated from the moment we walked into the auditorium- which is the old county hall chamber. Look for the Doors marked ‘Ayes’ and ‘Noes’. The play itself is very well acted with clever use of the chamber as a courtroom and barristers chambers....More

Thoroughly enjoyed this performance. Best thing I’ve seen in a while. Highly recommended but avoid front row seats, they’re just a little too close to the stage. Enjoy!

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized

They get sworn in before the performance. It’s only the main juror who stands up and says guilty or not guulty the others don’t do anything. If you’re worried just book a normal non juror seat
