Witness for the Prosecution

While in London, I went to see a new production of Agatha Christie’s great and very twisty play, Witness for the Prosecution. This version of the play was set in an actual courthouse, and some of the audience members (though not us) got to sit in the jury seats, which was so cool.

One of the many things I find remarkable about Agatha Christie is that even though I knew exactly what was going to happen, I was still in suspense. How does she do that? Part of the fun was that I was seeing it with my children, who had never read it. They had such fun trying to guess the murderer. A good reminder that great fiction should be entertaining!
