Witness for the Prosecution

Missing Agatha Christie’s “Witness for the Prosecution” Would Be Murder.

When you sit down to enjoy an Agatha Christie story, you can be certain of two things. First, there’s been a murder. Second, there’s a twist you’ll never see coming.

The Sterling Playmakers will be bringing this courtroom drama to the stage in April, complete with all the surprises a master of mystery can provide.

From the mind of the preeminent mistress of mystery, “Witness for the Prosecution” follows one of London’s finest defense attorneys as he works to prove the innocence of a client when all the evidence appears to be against him. As always with Agatha Christie, there’s a twist. This time it takes the form of a surprise witness from the prosecution.

Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, “Witness for the Prosecution” is directed by Jen Lofquist and produced by Andrew Lee.


April 21, 22, 28 & 29 at 8 p.m.
April 23 & 30 at 2 p.m.
Seneca Ridge Middle School
98 Seneca Ridge Drive, Sterling, VA

The April 22 performance will include sign language interpreters from HIS Sign.

There will be a special talk-back discussion after the performance on April 23 with a representative from the Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and mystery author Josh Pachter.

At the Saturday, April 29, show, attendees will be given $1 off admission when they bring in nonperishable food donations (such as shelf stable milk, juice boxes, instant oatmeal packets, ramen cup-o-noodles, granola bars, and mac n’ cheese single serving cups) for Backpack Buddies–a local program that provides weekend meal packs to school children who receive free or reduced lunches.
