"Witness for the Prosecution” centers on the case of Leonard Vole, an easy
going, down-on-his-luck young man whose only crime is helping lonely,
wealthy Emily French retrieve her packages from the street. The two become
friends but after an evening of playing double solitaire, Miss French is found
murdered and Vole is charged with the crime. Wilfred Robarts, the defense
attorney for Vole matches wits with prosecutor Myers to prove Vole’s
innocence. Witnesses of all authorities testify, but it is the prosecution’s
witness who brings the case to an astonishing end. Known for her plot twists
and surprise endings, Miss Christie does not disappoint in this tightly woven
courtroom drama.

All roles are open except, character descriptions below:

Eurydice: A young woman (late teens/early 20s), curious about the world but inexperienced in it. Full of life and energy (even in the
underworld)

Orpheus: A young man (late teens/early 20s), charming and quiet, The greatest musician in the world. (Actors who can sing and/or play
an instrument, especially guitar, encouraged.)

Father: A middle-aged man (mid-40s to 60). A sweet romantic stuck in the dreary and surreal underworld, secretly hiding that he

Chorus of Stones: A chorus made up of residents of the land of the dead. Open to any gender.

A Nasty Interesting Man / The Lord of the Underworld: A dangerous, sensual, seductive man. Effortlessly in control of any

DeWitt Shoppingtown Mall, and expertly directed
by Sharee Pierce, the show is a hugely pleasing

The cast sparkles with some of the

" Witness was originally a work of fiction that Christie herself
adapted for the stage.
Director Sharee Lemos succeeds in
keeping the author’s long prose sections taut.
Kudos also
to experienced set designer Navroz N. Dabu, who knows well
how to limn the venue’s intimate space, with costumer
Christina Huffaker contributing effectively to several female

" Romaine, played by Heather Roach, who quickly
recaptures the audience’s attention. Delivering her
lines in a thick yet entirely intelligible German accent,
Roach ably creates a character with an icy
demeanor and a cynical sense of sarcasm.
