Set in 1920s London, the bloody muder of the glamorous Emily French takes place in a London townhouse. Having left her enormous fortune to young Leonard Vole, he becomes the prime suspect and is immediately arrested.
When the court date comes round, Leonard’s wife, Romaine, agrees to testify but instead of being in Leonard’s defense, she testifies as a witness for the prosecution. However, Romaine’s appearance in court is in fact part of a complex plan to prove his innocence.

Located in the heart of the British political and juridical district, London County Hall is situated on the South Bank of the River Thames, close to the London Eye and the House of Parliament. While you can take either public transport or drive, public transport it much easier. This is the full address of the theatre:
Tube: Waterloo or Westminster are the nearest tube stations and are within walking distance (Jubilee, Northern, Bakerloo, District, Circle). Follow exit signs to York Road and then walk a few minutes until you reach the County Hall which will be on your left.
Train: the closest mainline train station is Waterloo.
Bus: You can take the 12, 53, 76, 77, 148, 159, 211, 341, 381, 453, 507, RV1, C10, as well as the N109, N155, N381

We recommend that any access visitors book their seats in the Courtroom stalls as there is no lift to the Galleries and you will have to climb 33 steps up from the Chamber. The backroom of the Stalls has step free access because there is a lift.
There is also step free access from the Jubilee Line at Waterloo station and the Circle and District lines from Westminster.
