A courtroom drama is taking centre stage at Norwich's Maddermarket Theatre all this week.
Witness for the Prosecution, directed by Becky Sweet, is the latest production being presented by the city venue and the show runs until Saturday.
The Agatha Christie thriller sees passion, murder and love combine as Leonard Vole – played by Joey Herzfeld – stands accused of murdering a rich widow and fights to escape the hangman's noose.
'It's the classic, 'did he do it or not?'' said Rebecca Wass, the theatre's general manager. 'If you love the Sunday night television dramas or enjoy a crime novel then this play is made for you... There are plenty of twists in the tale and the play keeps you guessing to the very end.'
The original stage production for Witness for the Prosecution opened at the Winter Garden Theatre in London in 1953.
