Following the success of ‘Our Town’ in 2018, Peter Newling has chosen to direct another classic at Malvern Theatre Company – and this time it’s a courtroom drama by Agatha Christie. The affable Leonard Vole is being tried for the murder of a wealthy woman – defended by Sir Wilfred Robarts. Unfortunately his alibi depends on the testimony of his callous wife, who after the discovery of a legal loophole, decides to appear in court against him. To Sir Wilfred’s surprise this is only the first in a series of puzzling revelations and reversals. Courtroom thrills to warm your winter!
