‘Witness For the Prosecution’ Takes the Stand at Stagecrafters

Agatha Christie’s thriller “Witness for the Prosecution” is next up for Chestnut Hill’s Stagecrafters Theater for three weekends beginning Friday, Nov. 22, through Sunday, Dec. 8.

The play is based on a Christie short story written in 1925 that details the trial of Leonard Vole, a young man accused of the brutal murder of a wealthy older woman who changed her will in his favor. The work is acclaimed by critics and audiences alike as an incomparable courtroom procedural.

Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. There will be no performance on Thanksgiving, Nov. 28. A “Meet the Cast and Director” Q & A session will be held following the performance on Friday, Nov. 29.

Tickets are $21 online (no service charge) and $25 at the door. Tickets for Thursday evening performances are 2/$32 online and 2/$35 at the door. Discounts are available for students with a valid ID, seniors over 65, industry members, and groups of 15 or more.

The theater is located at 8130 Germantown Avenue. For information call 215-247-8881; for reservations call 215-247-9913 or visit www.thestagecrafters.org.
