Great acting, Clever, Ambitious

See it if The courtroom staging makes this rendition a necessity in my opinion. If you love a thriller, this is for you.

Don't see it if Parts can feel borderline procedural; if you aren't drawn to those, the show may lose you

The Stage (UK)
September 30th, 2021

Director Lucy Bailey wrings every possibility from the uniquely atmospheric space. She does, however, sometimes overplay her hand, adding starkly obvious, sudden shifts ... to underline ’significant moments’. This juicy Witness looks set to be giving evidence for a long time.

The debating chamber of the old Greater London Council ... lends a genuine touch of majesty to proceedings ... One acid glance from [barrister, Mr Myers] would be enough to make most witnesses crumple.

The climax ... is action-packed but left me rather cold. It feels like an almost pantomimic finale to what is until then a slow-burning thriller ... for all this one's beauty, it's a pity there isn't a little more grit.

This serpentine classic is perfectly placed in every sense. Verdict: Guilty of providing gripping entertainment. Sentence: Probably several more years.
