In the Wings: Witness for the Prosecution. Meet Thomas Losey.

Thomas Losey plays Dr. Wyatt in Witness for the Prosecution, the second MainStage production in the 2013-2014 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Agatha Christie wrote the script.

Question: Why did you audition for Witness for the Prosecution?
Thomas Losey: It's Agatha Christie – anything she writes is awesome. It's another chance to work with great actors and crew, and I've never worked before with the director, Lori Portner. I'm really enjoying doing this.

Q: Who is Dr. Wyatt? What is he like?
T.L.: He is the medical examiner. He is a bit pompous, and he thinks he is smarter than everyone in the room, even the lawyers. He has no problem portraying that to them.

Q: What is your favorite mystery?
T.L.: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, which is another Agatha Christie murder mystery.

Witness for the Prosecution opens Friday, October 18 and runs through Saturday, November 2 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street, at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday shows begin at 2:30 p.m.
