Director Nathalie Peron keeps a sharp eye on the proceedings in the Old Bailey courtroom as Hélène Gosselin (Court Usher), Lisa Shortt (Clerk of the Court), and Bill Cox (Judge Wainwright) rehearse a scene from Witness for the Prosecution.

After two months of twice-weekly rehearsals, the characters are now developed, the costumes are chosen and the lines are memorized (well, nearly) ....
