Move the detective to the dramatic scene, on the one hand, graceful, on the other - dangerous. Gracious, because the twisted intrigue to the audience is always to their liking. And dangerous, because the theatrical public wants to be in the grip of strong emotions, and they, as you know, do not achieve certain plot twists. That's why the creators of the play have to look for a solution that would allow them to hold the attention of the auditorium for three hours.
The director of the play, the Frenchwoman Bischofberge, not only offered her stage decision to Agatha Christie's famous play The Witness of the Accusation, but also united the people who are playing on stage and sitting in the hall, in the most original way. Actors play the role of participants in the trial - lawyers, prosecutors, witnesses, accused, judges, and the audience becomes jurors who, in the final of the story, must make their decision.
An elderly woman is killed. In her death, accuse the charming young man of Leonard Vaul. The sarcastic royal lawyer Sir Wilfrid and the very principled accuser, Mrs. Myers, are struggling to draw the jury to their side. The decisive argument in this confusing business is the testimony of Wohl's wife Romain. She is the main witness.
Detective story ... What could be more mysterious than an unsolved murder!
Foggy London. There is a trial. A respectable English gentleman is charged with the brutal murder of his elderly relative, who left him a huge legacy.
The only witness who can pledge a kind word for him is Leonard's wife.
But she is a foreigner, a German. Yes, and a beauty to the same. Is it possible to trust a spectacular young blonde in an unimaginable hat?
The judge has a right to be wary of her. And the time is still hard - the first peaceful years after the end of the Second World War.
But the wife of the accused does not intend to confirm her husband's alibi. She herself accuses him of committing a grave crime. Can I trust her?
In addition, the motives for her accusation are unclear. Revenge, self-interest or betrayal? The lawyer of her unhappy husband is lost in conjecture. Which spouse is telling a lie?
A cunning and prudent prosecutor is already preparing a charge. The judge is ready to take a decision on the case ...
As always with Agatha Christie, the plot develops rapidly. Until the end, it is unclear who committed the crime.
Detective story is not about murder, but about restoring order and justice.
“ Great performance! There was not a single empty seat in the hall, they even sat on the steps. All the artists played great. I especially want to mention Renat Litvinov and Sergey Chonishvili. We watched the whole family, everyone is happy.
“ It was February 24, 2019. The performance seemed pretty bland. From Agatha Christie only the name. Dobrovolskaya as a prosecutor is nonsense. But Litvinova, Vernik and Chonishvili are great !!!
“ It seemed to me boring .. I would not advise. Most of all I liked Dobrovolskaya .. But the overall impression is nudnovato ...
